The summer term is always a very busy one, especially considering that the children now start rehearsing for the end of year production. This year it is Alice in Wonderland, and I’m already looking forward to seeing the children up on that stage acting their hearts out.
In English we will be looking at a book called The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will be exploring some of the themes of the book before the children have a go at writing their own adventure story.
In Maths we are studying fractions. This will include learning how to recognise fractions of objects, shapes and numbers and exploring the difference between unit and non unit fractions.
Our topic this half term is Marvellous Mountains. During this unit we will looking at the key features of a mountain range, exploring how different types of mountains are formed, studying the mountainous climate, and looking at how tourism affects mountain regions.
