Spring Term  


We have written some fabulous description based on 'Holes'. We are now moving on to non fiction writing, focusing on argument and debate. We are also studying a whole school text at the end of this half term. Look out for a new star writers display in February.



We continue to work on multiplication and division. It is essential that all children are confident with all times tables up to 12 x 12, to be able to do this work. We will also be learning about Roman numerals, area and perimeter. 



As part of our Christmas unit we will be learning that Jesus was a refugee and looking at the plight of refugees around the world today. We then move on to our Baptism unit.



This term's topic is The rain forest ' 



 After completing 'separating materials' we will be venutring into outer Space to learn about the Earth, Sun and Moon.
