In English, we will be reading The Good Thieves by Katherine Rundell. This is a fantastic story which provides many writing opportunities for us to explore.

Set in New York, it follows the adventures of Vita, as she attempts to save her Grandpa after he falls victim to the evil Sorrotorre.

We will have lots of avenues to explore including diaries, stories and ingenious plans!

In Guided Reading, we will be focusing on developing our core skills, with time spent on key elements of comprehension,

A two-week look at ratio will be followed up with an exploration of algebra. Following this we will do two-week blocks on decimals, and then expand our scope to examine fractions, decimals and percentages.

We will tackle work on area, perimeter and volume and then finish with a couple of weeks looking at mathematics and statistics.

Running alongside all of this will be our work on preparing for the 3 mathematics SATs tests in May.

We'll move on from electricity and light and begin the topic of 'Animals including Humans, which builds on work done in Year 3 and 4, examining how circulatory system helps the body function and how our choices can damage its effectiveness.

To do extra research for any of our science topics, use the buttons at the top of our class page. In particular, I recommend:

BBC Bitesize > KS2 > Science
The Oak Academy > KS2 > Science

Local History Topic

Our new humanities area of focus is centred around local history, though spread much further throughout time than our autumn term focus on World War II and its' impact on Nantwich and the surrounding area.

We'll be looking at why Nantwich 'looks the way it looks', and whether our town holds any fascinating historical secretes!

Not only this, but due to the nature of our local history investigation we will be utilising a lot of geographical field skills, blending the two humanities into one fun, local project.
