Next week in Topic the children will be concentrating on their new text ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’ They will be sequencing the story, adding actions to it to aid with retell with a story map and acting out and freeze framing parts of the story. Towards the end of the week, they will be deepening their understanding of the characters in the story, focusing on Jack and the giant, in preparation for a character description the following week.
In Maths the children will be continuing with grouping using arrays. Arrays are an arrangement of objects or pictures in rows or columns. Later in the week, they will be moving on to division by grouping. In mental maths they will carry on practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, so please continue to practice these with them at home. There are lots of songs on YouTube about counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and the splat square website is also useful!
