Curriculam: Autumn Term
Curriculam: Spring Term
In Maths, the children will:
- Rehearse place value in 3-digit numbers, order them on a number line and find a number in between; compare number sentences; solve additions and subtractions using place value; multiply and divide by 10 (whole number answers); count in steps of 10, 50 and 100.
- Add pairs of 2-digit numbers using partitioning (crossing 10s, 100 or both) and then extend to add two 3-digit numbers (not crossing 1000); recognise and sort multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10; double the 4 times-table to find the 8 times-table; derive division facts for the 8 times-table; multiply and divide by 4 by doubling or halving twice.
- Identify 1/2s, 1/3s, 1/4,s 1/6s, and 1/8s; and realise how many of each make a whole; find equivalent fractions; place fractions on a 0 to 1 line; find fractions of amounts.
- Recognise right angles and know they are 90°; understand angles are measured in degrees; recognise as the symbol for the measurement of degrees; name and list simple properties of 2D shapes; begin to understand and use the term perimeter to mean the length/distance around the edge (border) of a 2D shape; begin to calculate using a ruler; know a right angle is a quarter turn; know 360° is a full turn; begin to understand angles and identify size of angles in relation to 90°.
- Place 3-digit numbers on empty 100 number lines; begin to place 3-digit numbers on 0-1000 landmarked and empty number lines; round 3-digit numbers to the nearest ten and to the nearest hundred; use counting up as a strategy to perform mental subtraction (Frog); subtract pounds and pence from five pounds; use counting up (Frog) as a strategy to perform mental subtraction of amounts of money; subtract pounds and pence from ten pounds.
Non-fiction Unit 3.2 Where Would You Like to Live?
In this unit, the children will explore the Big Question: Where would you like to live? They read the interactive eBook, retrieving and collating information about different countries and identifying the similarities and differences between the lives of children around the world. They learn about how to present information using paragraphs and headings. In their writing tasks, compose a report in response to the Big Question.
Poetry Unit 3.2 – Playing with words
In this unit, the children will enjoy listening and responding to a range of poems. They learn about poems that play with language. They compose class and individual poems, editing and improving their work as part of the process.
We are bug fixers – Finding and correcting bugs in programs.
In this unit, the children work with six example Scratch projects. They explain how the scripts work.
Finding and correcting errors in them, and explore creative ways of improving them. The children learn to recognize some common types of programming error, and practice solving problems through logical thinking.
Rocks and Soil:
In this unit children will recognise that below the surface of Earth is rock which they may not be able to see. They will understand that over time rocks have been broken down to form smaller rocks, pebbles, stones and eventually soils. They will recognise that there are different rocks and different soils which have different properties and appearances. Children will identify, name and describe different rocks. They will compare and group different rocks and soils based on appearance and properties, e.g. hardness, and they will examine the soil in their local area. They will consider the impact of worms in making soils. Children will also describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when living things have been trapped in rock. They will have the opportunity to make a model fossil and look at the work of early palaeontologists, such as Mary Anning.
Working Scientifically, children will have the opportunity to make close observations and detailed comparisons of rocks and soils and they will investigate the appearance and some properties of rocks and soils. They will have the opportunity to set up simple comparative and fair tests. They will investigate how soils are formed, how animals make their habitat in soils, and the constituents of soil. This unit also offers the opportunity for children to consider risks and hazards involved in handling soils.
In Arabic children will continue to work from Madina Book 1. They will be able to ask simple questions and answer them. They will learn how to both say and write new vocabulary as well as be able to translate them. Children will also work in role play to enforce their new vocabulary learnt and be able to have simple dialogues with each other.
In this term, children will learn about
- Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) 1
- Model wudu
- Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) 2
- Model ghusl
- Model tayammum
- Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) 3
- Virtues of actions

Let’s go fly a kite: the children explore the construction of kites and how they helped too shape the world. Pupils will learn about the shapes, structures and design and evaluate their own kite designs
Geography – Extreme Earth
This Extreme Earth unit will teach your class about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes. Through discussion and practical tasks, children will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.
Boys: This term, pupils will be focussing on cricket. They will develop their fielding and batting skills and take turns to experience different positions on the field.
