We all like learning differently. Try TT Rockstars, Hit The Button and practising often at home.

This term we will be enjoying the Adventures of Odysseus, by Hugh Lupton. Get ready for tales of strange creatures, vengeful gods and goddesses and an incredible journey to get back home!
We will have lots of great writing opportunities, including letters, persuasive writing, newspaper reports and much much more.
We will also be exploring poetry on the same theme, working hard to develop our descriptive phrases.
In SPaG, we will be developing our grammar and punctuation, using pronouns, adverbials and modal verbs, as well as practising our use of tense.
This term we will be building on our knowledge of place value. After learning more about Roman Numerals, we will be working on place value, using numbers up to 1,000,000 .
We will then be working on the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, consolidating what we know and finding the best method to solve different numerical problems.
Following this, we continue our journey into fractions. We'll look at how to represent them and introduce terms such as equivalent, numerator and denominator.
In our upcoming studies, we're diving deep into the realms of Earth and the cosmos. Starting with our home planet, we'll unveil its unique place in the solar system and trace back the historical quest to understand its shape. We will uncover the fascinating mechanics of day and night, guided by Earth's graceful rotation. We'll also find out about the moon, looking at it in contrast to other planets. This immersive journey promises not only to expand our scientific knowledge but also ignite a profound sense of wonder about the universe we call home.
This term, we're stepping into the incredible world of Ancient Greece! In our History lessons, we'll be exploring the achievements and culture of this ancient civilization, all while considering the global events of that time period.
We'll dive into their society, notable structures like the Parthenon, and the remarkable accomplishments of the Greek people. Keep an eye out for our exciting homework assignments linked to this captivating topic!
