We will start by reading and studying 'The Twits' before reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and comparing the two books. This term, we will begin to read longer and more challenging texts to get us ready to start Key Stage Two. We will be writing our own persuasive texts to encourage people to visit Meriden, and we will be writing instructions for making our own medicine. We will also be continuing our work on writing interesting narratives.
In Maths we will be learning about capacity and temperature before learning about fractions. Our work on fractions will involve learning about halves, quarters, thirds and recognising the equivalence of some simple fractions.
In Science this half term, we will be learning about materials and their properties, before consolidating our work on animals and their habitats. During Sports week, we will be conducting experiments to help us learn more about keeping our bodies healthy.
Our RE topic this half term is Gospel. The main themes of this unit are forgiveness and peace. We will be learning about the teaching of Jesus and some of the stories he told.
Our topic this half term has a geography focus. We will be looking at the village of Meriden, studying its features and conducting surveys. We will be reading maps and making our own maps. We will also learn how to find Meriden on a map of the UK.
