Our topic this Spring term is Animals. In the first half term, we will learn about animals that exist today and in the second half term we will learn about some extinct animals.  In maths we will be revisiting addition and subtraction and beginning to learn about multiplication and division through practical activities both in and outside of the classroom. We will also start to tell the time and use non-standard units to measure.
In literacy our key texts will be:
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
- The Little Red Hen
- Cave Baby
- Tyrannosaurus Drip
- The Odd Egg

Based on these texts, we will be writing some instructions about how to make bread, a diary in role as the caterpillar, rewriting traditional tales and lots of non-fiction writing in science.
