This half term in English our books will be all about carnivals. We will be learning to do instructions, posters and diary entries. We will be focusing on creating longer pieces of writing, using the correct punctuation in preparation for our move to year 2. 



In Maths this half term we going to be using the skills we have already learnt of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and apply this to multiplication and division. We will then be looking at fractions of shapes and numbers, before looking at position and direction.  


Our project this half term is Rio de Vida. We will be looking at everything Brazil. We will be having our own carnival, making our own musical instruments and masks as well as looking at Samba dancing and music.

Where Everyone Belongs

At Djanogly Sherwood we know that things are challenging and different right now we wanted to help by sharing some good resources. Here is a video you could watch and share with yoru children explaining how to talk to children and race and diversity. We will also be sharing lessons on Seesaw through some great books about diversity. We hope that this helps. Remember our strap line at Sherwood is 'Where everyone belongs'.
