We will look at Geometry and then we will move onto Length and Perimeter. We will complete daily rapid recall and fluency questions. In all of our learning we will use our reasoning skills to explain and prove our answers.


In our English this half term we will be basing our lessons around the text ‘The Tin Forest’ by Helen Ward. We will read the text and look atthe language and word choices used in the text as well as discussing the illustrations. Children will create their own leaflets and also diary entries and descriptions. We will continue to have either phonics sessions or spelling/reading lessons each day. We will have handwriting sessions throughout the week.

In Geography we will learn about the country of Italy. We will learn about where it is and the countries which touch its borders. We will also look at the seas which surround parts of it.
In Science, we will learn about Forces and Magnets. We will investigate different forces and look at how magnets work and which materials are attracted to them.
In Art we will be looking at textiles and how we can join different materials. We will also have an Italy day which will include food technology including food preparation and how to use equipment safely.
