In Maths, we will continue to follow the WhiteRose scheme. In terms 5 and 6 we will be covering the following areas.

  • Perimeter and area

If you wish to follow White Rose at home, you can see the yearly overview, small steps and individual lesson resources. 



In addition to daily reading, spelling and times tables practise, your child will bring home two pieces of work that will support their learning across the curriculum. This will be set on a Wednesday to be returned each Monday.

Please ensure that you are reading with and engaging in discussion with your child around their book at home daily.
