Where is the best place for a picnic?
In Geography, we will be learning about the immediate area around the school. We will use aerial photos and maps to locate places that would be good for a picnic.
In English, we will begin by looking at shape poetry, before writing diaries based on traditional tales. We will finish off the term by writing a recount of our fantastic picnic!

In RE, we will be answering the question 'Why does Easter matter to Christians?'
In Maths, we will begin by continuing our work on Statistics (tally charts, pictograms and block diagrams), before moving on to our unit on Shape.
In Computing, we will be designing and creating artwork using the different tools on Pixal Art.
In Design and Technology, we will be creating our own pop-up Easter cards.
Happy New Year!
A big thank you for all your lovely cards and gifts that all the grown ups received before Christmas. You are so kind and generous! We hope you had a wonderful, relaxing break with your families.
Looking forward to a fun filled term with you all!
