This half term we will be learning more about fractions when we will be adding and subtracting mixed number fractions and improper fractions.

There will be lots of exciting practical activities when we come to learn about the volume of a shape and discover how 2D net representations can be turned into 3D shapes.

We will continue to have a big push on our times tables and consolidate other areas of our learning since September

 

There's lots of fantastic websites to browse at home, that can really support your understanding and security of maths. There's also lots of websites for parents to use that can help your child too. Here is a suggested list that you may find helpful:

Our class novel this half term is 'The Egyptian Cinderella, by Shirley Como.' See how a young girl, who was taken from her Greek home, finds future happiness through an unlikely source: a precious gold slipper.

 

This novel will really help to develop our understanding of lots of new vocabulary and give us many different opportunities to produce some fantastic writing!

In science we are  exploring different life cycles of humans, animals and plants! We're also investigating why plants are so colourful and how this helps them to reproduce.

Our learning journey was recently helped with a class visit to Blackpool Zoo, where we saw at first hand how different animals and plants are able to survive in their various environment!
