Children complete these number challenges these every week.   One challenge is a quick fire timed challenge and the other contains lots of number questions to work through.

Subject Focus

Our topic for this half term is Team GB. This is a mainly Geography focus. We will be finding out about the countries that make up Great Britain and what it's like in each one. We will be looking at human and natural features, food, traditions and stories from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. We will also be exploring atlases, maps and plans to find out about our seas, oceans and continents. We will also be looking at our local area and comparing it to a village in China.
