Maths

In maths, we will be looking at twelve and twenty four hour time (analogue and digital) and applying this knowledge to answer word problems. We will also be looking at multiplication and division.

We will continue our Olympic Maths Challenge. Well done to everyone who got certificates last half term.

RE

In Re, we will continue looking at the ‘Words of Wisdom that Guide Us’.

Topic

Our topic this half-term is Dragons.  We will be looking at what we already know and exploring things we want to find out.  We will look at Myths and Legends and how dragons are viewed in different cultures and countries.

Our Topic will involve lots of Art, where we will explore; line, tone and texture to create our very own dragons. We will create dragon eyes using clay, and then use these to inspire our own poems.

PE

We will have swimming lessons every Monday morning.  We will also have PE with Velocity on Thursday morning.

Please ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school on the correct days and that hair is tied up and any earrings removed or covered.
