Autumn Term


At St Thomas' we follow Power Maths, White Rose Edition. The children make fantastic progress through this scheme, taking small steps to ensure Mastery of each Unit before we move on.


We are starting with Place Value, up to Thousands, using base ten and place value counters as support. We then move on to Addition and Subtraction. Just before Christmas we will focus on Area before Starting on Multiplication and Division.


In June the children will take the MTC - Multiplication Checks. This is an online test where children have six seconds per question, 25 questions, based on their mental knowledge of the times tables. 


This term, in Computing lessons, we will be focusing on Online Safety, Spread sheets and Effective Searches. The Vocabulary and Knowledge Organisers for these areas of learning are below.


Online Safety is taught at the beginning of every half term, discussed at the beginning of every lesson, as well as having its own unit focus. The children have created their own Code of Conduct for how they behave online at school as well as at home. These will be coming home soon.
