Welcome to the Spring term!  We are so excited about our new topic because we will be learning all about the Great Fire of London.

In English, we will be using the texts Toby and the Great Fire of London, Vlad and the Great Fire of London as well as the Great Fire of London, a non-fiction text by Emma Adams.  We will be writing character and setting descriptions, as well as a diary entry and a letter.  In non-fiction, we will be writing a newspaper report and fire safety instructions.

In Maths, we move onto multiplication and division involving 2s, 5s and 10s.  Learning about statistics by creating tally charts and drawing and interpreting pictograms. We will also be continuing to develop our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes and fractions.
