This term we will be focusing on area and finding the area of shapes and comparing them. After that, we will be moving on to fractions where we will be finding and showing equivalent fractions. We will also build upon our knowledge of adding and subtracting fractions, along with solving problems and counting up and down in hundredths. 

We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency, so please encourage your child to work on their key instant recall facts alongside their spellings and any other homework they are given.     

 

English

Our class text this term is Room 13. It is a thriller story, with a familiar setting - Whitby. It is all about a group of school children who go on a residential and room 13 appears and disappears. We will be using this novel to write our own chapter to the story and biographies. Using our existing grammar and punctuation skills.

Topic

Our Topic for this term is Road Trip UK. In this topic we will be travelling around the United Kingdom. We will learn about the different countries and cities that make up the UK. We will be use atlases and maps to find these places. We will also look closely at the city York, which we will be visiting later in the year. Where we will discuss the changes over time.

Our Science topic this term is animals and their habitats. They will explore the different habitats and will be able to categorise animals. We will also learn what a vertebrate and invertebrate are and the impact the environment has on habitats and animals.
