Welcome to Dahl Class

This term Dahl class will be learning about plants and animals. This will include leaning about their life cycles, food chains, classifications and many other areas. We will also be joined by a small group of ants and their queen, who we will be able to observe in ant farms that have been set up in the classroom. In addition to this, we will also have the opportunity to share experiences with other mini beasts that class 1 will be keeping.

In Maths, there will be a focus on measurement, specifically regarding money. This will have the children using decimals to add and subtract as well as having to convert money from pence to pounds and vice versa. Later on in the term, there will be a focus upon statistics.
