Spring term 2

This half term we will be learning lots of interesting things and applying different skills that we have learnt.

English

This term we will be focusing on writing letters of complaint (visit to the zoo & a seaside holiday) The children will be writing a play script based on the popular character Tin Tin. Our grammar focus will be: causal conjunctions, modal verbs, apostrophes for possession and contraction. 

 

Maths

This term in maths we will be consolidating our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction. There will be lots of work on multiplication and division with a focus on converting measures. Fractions will also be covered this term (improper and mixed).

Topic

 

 

Our topic this term will be all about Space. The children have enjoyed learning about the solar system, why we have day and night and the phases of the moon. Pupils will now be finding out about the Space Race between the Americans and Russians and the quest to be the first to land on the moon.
