Our Learning This Term: 
 

In this first half term, our topic is ‘Water.’ Within this topic we will look at the water cycle and states of matter for our geography and science focus. In English, we will be writing warning tales based on our example text ‘The Canal’. We will be encouraging lots of use of dictionaries to develop children’s ability to check meaning within their reading. We will be looking at ‘Why the Whales Came’ by Michael Morpurgo in our reading lessons. Mathematics will cover investigating number systems, pattern sniffing and solving calculation problems. In art we will be looking at the work of David Hockney as it links well with our water topic. Our RE work will start with Creation and be followed by Prayers, Saints and Feasts. We will also be having weekly French and PSHE lessons. PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.
