What are we learning about this term?


Our Topic for this Summer term is Africa. We will be looking at different countries in this vast and varied continent.


In Literacy we will be writing letters, creating our own encyclopaedia entries about African countries and writing descriptive pieces of extended writing based on African paintings.


In Numeracy we will be covering multiplication, division and a lot more word based number problems in preparation for the upcoming tests.


Science lessons will see us look at the World of Water, which hopefully will lend itself to a local trip. Design & Technology will be linked to our Africa topic where we will be making and recycling a variety of crafts.


Music lessons will be focussed on Reggae music this term – hopefully this fun and uplifting genre will be as popular as The Beatles were last term!
