Behind the names!
Watson Fothergill, originally born in Mansfield, was an English architect who designed over 100 unique buildings in Nottingham. I wonder if you can spot any of his architecture while you are out and about in Nottingham!
Sir Frank Bowden was a British businessman and inventor who founded the Nottingham Raleigh Bicycle Company. Raleigh has made many famous cycles over the years including the chopper and the bmx.
Our learning journey - Autumn 1
In maths we will be covering: place value, addition & subtraction, angles, perimeter & area as well as statistics.
We have many exciting texts coming up in English this term: Wonder and Holes. We will also be learning about persuasive writing around WWF and poetry by Edgar Allan Poe.
In Science we will be learning about animals including humans.
In RE we will be learning about some inspirational people such as Martin Luther King and Malala Yousafzai. This will also link to our PSHE learning about the law and rights.
We will also spend some time getting to know our class names better.
Keep checking back to see updates on what we've been getting up to!
Times tables up to 12
Speedy recall of times tables is vital for success in so many areas of maths. Children should practise their times tables weekly at home and these can be found in their reading diaries. Children must also know the related division facts.
It is absolutely crucial that children read for at least 10 minutes each day at home. This will enable them to build a wider vocabulary and a rich imagination.
If you have any questions about how to support your child at home, we would be more than happy to help!
