Darwin's Learning

Darwin has now started Block 2 learning

In Maths we will are finishing our learning about adding and subtracting 4 digit numbers using mental methods and formal column methods, measurements-length and perimeter and starting a large topic on multiplication and division which will run in to block 3 too. This will look at dividing and multiplying by 1, 10 and 100, X table facts and formal methods. We will also be learning, practising and reviewing our X Tables, Darwin has started learning our tables in a new very prescriptive way. We all learn together and practise daily! We follow the White Rose Scheme of learning in Maths.


In English we will be using the Write Stuff approach to become highly successful independent writers. We will be focusing on a range of skills to ensure our writing is exciting and skilful. We are loving writing in this way!

In Reading we will be reading a range of texts as a class to develop our fluency and reading skills, we will also be developing our understanding of texts through discussion and answering a range of questions.


In PE we will be learning all about Rugby with the Bath Rugby Club coaches on a Monday afternoon and on Friday morning we will be developing our gymnastic skills.
