This term we will be retelling, planning and writing a discussion text. We will be focusing writing a discussion around if we should wear school uniform. We will be looking at using formal connectives, paragraphs and simple present tense in SPAG.
Our main focus in Maths this term is recapping multiplication and division. Children will be learning to write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the 3s,4s and 8s times tables and using formal written methods for 2-digit times 1-digit numbers. We will then be using our reasoning and problem solving skills with multiplication and division.
In Science the children will be learning about Forces and Magnets. They will carry out different experiments and record their findings in pie charts, tables and bar charts. We are hoping to visit Eureka Museum to extend our learning about this topic.
Our Topic this term will be Ancient Egypt. Children will be stretching their inquisitive muscles to learn about history.
