This year in Literacy we will be reading high-quality texts including The Iron Man, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and FaRther. We will learn to make inferences from what we have read and, in our writing, we will become proficient in using paragraphs in both our fiction and non-fiction composition.
In Maths we will become familar with formal methods of calculation; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will work with increasingly larger numbers. In preparation for the Times Tables Check in June, we will memorise our times tables facts to 12x12, practising them daily in class and at home.
Topics this year include
- Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?
- Where does water come from?
- Why were Norman castles certainly not bouncy?
- What happens to the food we eat?
- How can we change that sound?
Highlights of the year will undoubtably include our trips to Lullingstone Country Park and Battle Abbey, as well our three day residential Bushcraft experience. Swimming lessons in the Summer Term will also be most enjoyable.
