It looks like we are about to enter our last term of the school year and oh what a year it has been! The children have been absolutely amazing and it has been my pleasure to see them progress and grow. This next term we will be looking at adventure stories and discussions in English. In Maths, we will be tackling angles, lines, shape and perimeter using our scheme Maths No Problem. We will be finishing off our Ancient Egyptians topic and in Science it will be plants. I’m really looking forward to this final term to finish off an incredible year.

The first part of our term in English we will be looking at story writing using ‘A Bear called Paddington’. In Maths, we will first be looking at place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division before starting our exciting Maths scheme called ‘Maths No Problem’. The scheme of work is based on Singapore Maths and helps the children move from concrete to pictorial to abstract learning.
