Numeracy (P2) - November - December 2018

Mathematics & Numeracy – In this half term we will:

Understand and use mathematical language when talking about their work. Make predictions and record how a simple investigation is carried out.

Number

  • Find missing numbers in a sequence of consecutive numbers within 20, increasing and decreasing.
  • Mentally add 0,1 or 2 to any number, answers within 20.
  • Add two numbers practically.
  • Practically subtract an amount from a set within 10 as ‘take away’.

Money

  • Recognise 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p coins.
  • Use 1p in shopping activities – buy 2 items at a time (total within 20p) referring to this as ‘adding’.

Measures

  • Use mathematical language when comparing surfaces for area.
  • Use simple timers during practical activities.

Shape and Space

  • Sort and group 3D shapes and mixed sets of 2D and 3D shapes according to their properties.
  • Use everyday language to describe position, direction and movement.

Handling Data

  • Use Tree and Venn and Carroll diagrams to sort.
  • Contribute to class pictographs and interpret the diagram.

Language & Literacy (P2) - November - December 2018

Language & Literacy – In this half term we will:

Talking and Listening

  • Use spoken and written language in their play and other experiences.
  • Listen with sustained concentration to other children and adults.

Reading

  • Read familiar, simple stories independently.
  • Know and understand the terms ‘story’, ‘character’ and ‘setting’.

Sentence Construction & Punctuation:

  • Begin to use the term ‘sentence' to identify sentences in a text.
  • Use upper case letters and full stops to demarcate sentences

Phonics & Spelling:

  • Linking sounds to letters, sounding the letters of the alphabet.
  • Hearing and saying sounds in order in words.
  • Blending sounds to read and write CVC words.

Handwriting:

  • Use a comfortable and efficient pencil grip.
  • Write lower case letters using the correct sequence of movements.

Numeracy (P3) - November - December

Mathematics & Numeracy – In this half term we will:

Select with help from the teacher, materials and equipment to use in a task by understanding their special characteristics. Choose and use appropriate number operations and mental strategies to solve problems in a wide variety of contexts. Understand and use an increasing range of mathematical language and symbols.

Number

  • Find missing numbers in a sequence of consecutive numbers within 50, increasing and decreasing.
  • Mentally add 0,1 or 2 to any number, answers within 50.
  • Add numbers within 50 using a number-line, recording horizontally.
  • Subtract numbers within 50 using a number-line, using both counting back and counting on (difference) methods, recording horizontally.

Money

  • Calculate change required when buying items, paying with amounts up to 20p.
  • Use efficient methods to find the total of a mixed group of coins totals up to 50p (e.g. by starting with the highest value coins, or by grouping lower value coins into 10p piles).

Measures, Shape and Space and Handling Data

  • Estimate and measure weight, length, capacity and area using non-standard units.
  • Understand and use quarter past: analogue and digital time and calculate durations involving hour, half past and quarter past start and finish times.
  • Recognise and use the mathematical names for 3D shapes- cube, cuboid, sphere, cylinder, cone.
  • Recognise and use mathematical names for increasing range of 2D shapes: Pentagon, Hexagon.
  • Use 2 criteria sorting diagrams (e.g. Tree, Venn, Carroll) to sort and group 2D shapes, 3D shapes and mixed sets of 2D and 3D shapes according to their properties.

World Around Us - November - December 2018

World Around Us (Topic Work) -  

Our topic in November and December will be ‘People Who Help Us.’ We will be finding out about people who help us in our school and in our community, to stay happy, healthy and safe. We will learn about the Police service and the Fire Brigade, the vehicles they use and where they work. We will learn about doctors, nurses, paramedics and opticians, and how they help us. We will meet people who help us in school, like the school librarian, care taker and secretary and gain a better understanding of their role and responsibilities. Throughout our topic, we will learn how to be P2 pupils who are helpful to others as well.

ICT

Explore: Move Bee-Bot with purpose. Use forwards, backwards and clear memory commands.

Express: Participate in a whole class Christmas song. Song will be recorded using a camera or microphones for school website.

Exchange: Use the phones to call a patient and partake in a short discussion during role play.

Evaluate: Children will watch or listen to their song. They will talk to their teacher about it.

Exhibit: Save work. Children can print work using the print icon.
