A Message from the Class Teacher, Mr Allen

Term 2 2017

I hope everyone is feeling well rested for the new term!

 In English, we are going to be looking at factual writing this term. This includes writing our own newspaper articles, diary entries and recounts.

We will be concentrating on the use of fractions this term in Maths. We will be focusing on how to simplify fractions, equivalent fractions and using them with number and measurements.

In Science, we will continue our investigation of forces including water resistance. We will be looking at how we use these forces including levers and pulleys.

 Ancient Egypt will remain our focus in our Topic sessions and we will continue to look into the history and geography. This will include looking at the River Nile and its uses as well as Pharaohs and the pyramids.

 In RE, the class will be looking at Christianity where we will be looking into the Bible and how it is used before we concentrate on the Christmas story.

 PE sessions will be on Thursday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure all PE kits are brought in for both sessions.
