For English this half term, we will look at narratives and we will review a book. We will be reading a Tudor based story and the children will then write a review of this book. Later in the term we will write poetry.
In Maths this half term, we will look at number and place value. We will use lots of practical resources to help the children understand place value and the concept of hundreds, tens and units.
We will start our new topic 'sound' during this half term. We will question how sound travels and how to muffle sound. We will use a range of instruments and electronic devices to support the children's experiments.
