We will undertake loads of interesting and challenging learning this year, including: 

-Riveting Writing for many different purposes;

-Improving our splendid spelling and gorgeous grammar so that we are ready to impress; 

- Marvellous Maths - with a particular focus on mental methods and problem solving; 

-Rad Reading - because books are FUN, AND Cool Comprehension - so that we have a secure understanding of texts and can talk and write about them;

-Super Science - lots of practical activities over the year on a range of topics including Space, Life Cycles, Forces and Materials;

- Terrific topics, such as - Black History, Ancient Greeks, Natural Disasters, Rivers, Britain's ancient Settlers;

Lots of awesome Art as well, beginning as always with your self portraits
