Dear Parents,
Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and that the children enjoyed their well-deserved break.

This term we will be learning about lots of different things. Our topic will be based around Famous Explorers. We will be looking at the role of an explorer and discoveries that have been made. In Geography we will be looking at volcanoes and earthquakes and how and why these are caused. We will also be looking at different land marks and the use of a mill and how bread is commercially as well as making our own.
In maths the children will be learning to multiply and divide, as well as recapping on some addition and subtraction work from last term. Our literacy lessons will include, writing recounts, diary entries and non-chronological reports. The non-chronological reports will link in with science, which is being taught by Mrs Mansfield this term. Mrs Mansfield and the children will be looking at food chains and classifying living things.
In art we are going to be learning how to create observational drawings, looking at different artists and techniques. We will then be creating our own observational drawings, linked to our topic.
Mrs Tilley will continue to teach P.E. and R.E. on a Monday morning, please make sure that your child has their P.E. kit in school.
Children will continue to bring home a maths game and book from the library. Please can you make sure that these are returned on a Friday.

Many thanks,
Holly Eaton
