This term we will be focusing on place value. We will be applying our knowledge to 5 digit numbers below 10,000 using our partitioning skills to partition the number in a range of different ways. This will allow us to understand their position within a sequence and a number line. We will also be learning how to read and write Roman Numerals which will be used throughout the topic.

We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency, so please encourage your child to work on their key instant recall facts alongside their spellings and any other homework they are given.     



Our class text this term is The Story of Tutankhamun. It is a non-fiction text that tells the story of Tutankhamun and Howard Carter's. We will be using this to inspire us to write instructions and an explanation text. We will continue to focus on our grammar, spelling and punctuation throughout the term.
