In Maths, we will be learning how to read, understand and represent data in tally charts and bar charts. We will look at a variety of different scales and become super confident in answering questions by looking at the information in the charts.
We will also be learning about fractions. We will be counting in tenths, adding fractions and learning about equivalent fractions. We shall use the bar model to help us become confident with fractions. If we know the times tables (year 2 -x2 x5 x10 year 3 - x3 x4 x8) then fractions is a lot easier.
We are learning about E Safety , we will understand the need for caution when using an internet search for images and what to do if we find anything unsuitable. Also we will learn to use a range of software to collect and present information.
