Welcome back and a Happy New Year!
Linking with our Roman topic, we will be learning how to count in Roman numerals to 100. We will also be learning how to plot and read co-ordinates on a grid and calculate the perimeter and area of 2D shapes. In addition, we will be continuing with Numeracy Ninjas, timed calculation exercises with the aim to improve the children's mental strategies and times tables.
Grammar will be our focus for the first part of the term, including fronted adverbials, pronouns and determiners. We will then be writing persuasive letters, as part of a whole school project.
Please continue to read with your child daily. We will be focusing on summarising what we have read and using our predicting skills to consider what may happen.
