Within literacy, the book we will be looking at is Skellig. Throughout the therm, the children will complete a number of written pieces to develope a wide range of skills. This includes: a diary from different characters perspectives from within the book, formal letter writing, a news report, poetry and fantasy story writing. 

Within this we will also be gaining a more confident understanding of the use of technology to support the presentation of our work. We will be focusing on Word, Power Point and Excel and using these when producing our final pieces of work.

Our maths mission for the spring term is our class enterprise task. As a class, we will decide on item/activity to sell - this will help us focus on a range of financial skills and understanding.

 

Within science, we will be looking and forces and motions and also life cycles of animals. The children will understand the solar system as a hole and understand the importance of the Sun. They will also be looking at day and night as well as seasons and years. The children will also be exploring famous scientists around this area.
