Welcome to Dolphins
Ancient Sumer- Varjak Paw
Our topic for Autumn term 1 is all based around the book 'Varjak Paw'. Our learning across the curriculum will link to the story, which will be revealed slowly. Therefore, we ask that you do not tell your child this half term's book or rush and buy the book. This is to ensure that learning at Ranelagh continues to be new and exciting and captivates children's learning. This also links in with our history topic where we are looking at ancient sumar which we will also link in with our DT and art where we will be designing an ancient sumar ziggurat and an ancient sumar clay artefact.
As well as all of this, in maths we will concentrating on place value and the four operations including times tables. Your cooperation with helping your child learn their times tables is much appreciated. By the end of the year the expectations for what times tables your child needs to learn are below:
Year 3- 2,3,4,5,8 and 10's
Year 4- All times table number facts up to 12 x 12
Any questions or queries, don't hesitate to come and speak to me.
