Happy New Year and welcome back!

This half term, our topic is ‘Why does it rain?’ We will learn all about the water cycle, the journey of a river and the history of the cholera disease. In science, our focus is states of matter and changing state. We look forward to doing lots of practical lessons to develop our understanding of solids, liquids and gases.

In English this half term, we are reading ‘The Iron Man’ by Tim Hughes. We are continuing to develop our ability to incorporate expanded noun phrases and a range of fronted adverbials. We are also focussing on using the correct punctuation and editing our work.

In maths, we are focussing on two step problems, data and fractions. We would appreciate it if you could continue to use Mathletics, RMeasi-Maths and the times tables games that you can access via class dojo.
