In maths the children will continue to practise adding and subtracting numbers using their own informal methods. They will learn about fact families and how to find inverse operations (for example 3+7=10, 7+3=10, 10-3=7, 10-7=3). In RE the children have begun to explore the beliefs of Christians and listened to the story of creation. In dance the children have listened to superhero theme tunes (wonder woman, batman) and created their own actions to fit the music. On Thursday Mrs Wood will finish some superhero art.
