Croeso i Ddosbarth Grug!
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to another exciting year here at Wat’s Dyke. The children have already been busy learning about how to be a super hero in all their learning; through being ambitious, brave, creative and caring.
This year the children will be leading the way in their topic ‘Let’s Celebrate’. They will be sharing their ideas about what they want to find out and how they will do it. They will learn all about the skills they need to develop and will take charge in their learning, developing these skills.
This term in Maths the children will be focusing on Place value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Money and Fractions. Keep an eye on your Seesaw page for Flipped Learning videos to help you back in the classroom.
Children will be learning how to write non-chronological reports and newspaper reports. They will be able to use these skills in their topic work.
