Creative Curriculum 

This half term, we are thinking about our local environment. We will ask ourselves the question: Where am I? As well as a super fun camping trip to the New Forest, we will be looking at what we can learn from maps, sporting challenges using the environment, reading grid references and orienteering. Hopefully we won't get lost on a little orienteering trip! 


Guided Reading 

We will be reading The Silver Sword by Ian Serraillier - a fascinating and emotional tale of Polish family who were torn apart during the war and their journey to be reunited.

Firstly, we will be writing escape narratives based on our reading! 



Our maths this term will focus on place value to ten million and the four operations: multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Also, we will start practicing arithmetic and becoming speedy mathematicians.
