Curriculum Information
Autumn Term
Myths
In Literacy, the children will be learning about Greek Myths. They will identify features of myths, learn to use varied sentence openers and connectives. The children will also develop their writing skills by using dialogue and speech accurately, commas, semi colons, exclamation marks and speech marks. In their sentence work, the children will learn about conditional sentences, using repeated words for effect and using adverbial phrases.
In reading, the children will develop skills of inference and deduction; Comment on why writer may use certain language; Use expression to retell a story; Predict what comes next; Identify audience and purpose for writing; Note and develop initial ideas, drawing on reading and research; Integrate dialogue to convey character and advance the action.
Poetry
The children will also complete a unit of learning on poetry. They will learn to explore how writers use language for comic & dramatic effects; Compare how a common theme is presented in poetry; Make notes on & use evidence from across a text to explain ideas (T7); Perform a poem making use of dramatic conventions; Group words according to their meanings; Experiment with different poetic forms and styles to write their own; Understand different ways to support others in groups; Experiment with different poetry forms and styles to write their own poems; Adapt nonnarrative forms and styles to write

Add and subtract 2digit numbers mentally; choose a strategy for solving mental additions or subtractions; solve word problems. Use counting up (Frog) as a strategy to perform mental subtraction; find change from a multiple of ten pounds using counting up. Multiply and divide by 4 by doubling or halving twice; use mental multiplication strategies to multiply by 20, 25 and 9.
