In Maths this week, we will be looking at the place value of 100. The key vocabulary that we will be using is:

  • tens

  • ones

  • ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety, one hundred


In English, we are reading the traditional tale ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. The version we are looking at is by Lauren Childs. The new vocabulary that we will be thinking about is:

  • selfish

  • impolite

We will be starting our creative learning focus this week. The ‘big’ question this half term is Why is Chesham Here? This week we will be starting with our entry activity looking at different landmarks of Chesham and learning their names, such as the Clock Tower, the Elgiva Theatre, Skottowes Pond, the River Chess and Lowndes Park.
