In English this half-term, we will be starting off with poetry in order to get our vocabulary flowing and our use of figurative language and description up and running again. After poetry, for the rest of the half-term we shall be looking at story writing with a flashback feature. This will see us practise writing from different points of view, within different settings and using a variety of characters too. By focusing on character development and setting description, we shall look to: group related ideas into paragraphs, use conjunctions to express time, place and cause whilst, each week, building an increasing range of sentence structures to help create our own stories that will hook our reader and keep them wanting more!

In Maths, we shall be exploring place value in the first few weeks before moving on to the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Our Science topic for this half term shall be animals including humans. Throughout this topic, we shall be working towards being able to:

    • Identify and name the main parts of the human circulatory system, and explain the functions of the heart, blood vessels and blood

    • Recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function
