In English lessons we focus on traditional tales, chronological reports and instructions. We use Talk for Writing to help children learn stories and imitate the language they need to write their own story. 

This term we will be looking at:
- The Tiger who came to tea.

- Story Dice

-Peter Rabbit

We focussing on sentence structure, including capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We are including adjectives in our writing and reading our work back to check it makes sense. We are using conjunctions, such as 'and', 'but', 'or' and 'because'. We are also working on handwriting and spelling.


We are using Maths Mastery to ensure all children develop strong foundations in maths. This year we will secure our number bonds to 10 and 20, we will add and subtract numbers using a number line, and learn how to add 10 more and 10 less to any given number to 100.

This term, we will continue to practise using all four operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 

Our topics

We follow the Alumno Curriculum and this is the bases for all our topics throughout the year.


We will be looking at the city of Stoke-on-Trent and how the city and the pottery industry grew. We will be looking at the importance of the canals and potbanks. The children will design a plate. We will then compare Stoke-on-Trent to Llandudno and look at how a coastal community is different from our own city.
