In English this half-term, we will be looking at fantasy narratives and creating our very own fantasy story! By focusing on characters, settings and plot, children will create their own stories and will practise reading them out so that they can bring them to life! This will all tie in nicely with our new book - (the children don't know the book yet as we're working on predictions and clues at the moment) which will be revealed soon! 

In Maths, we shall be exploring place value and looking to secure and develop our understanding of addition and subtraction too.

Our Science topic for this half term shall be, forces. Throughout this topic, children shall look to better:

  • Explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object
  • Identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces
  • Recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

Our new Geography topic is going to be all about Europe!! We shall be using maps and atlases to help locate and identify Europe, european countries and cities as well as exploring physical and human features found throughout Europe.

Our Art and D.T. lessons will be linked to our 'Europe' theme.

In P.E., the children will cover invasion games and dance.

Kind regards

Mr Orford
