Learning this term: 

In English we will be reading the Map Maker’s Race and continuing to work on developing our writing skills inspired by this novel.

In Maths we will be focussing on properties of shape and measurements. Our learning will encompass lots of practical working and converting units of measure.

In Science we will be learning about electricity. We will be working scientifically using symbols and practical apparatus to explore and construct simple circuits.

Our Learning Challenge this half term is geography focussed and we will be exploring ‘Marvellous Maps’. We will be expanding out map reading skills through using four-figure co-ordinates and identifying locations around the world.
