This week in Maths, we have been revisiting our understanding of addition and subtraction with regrouping. We have then applied this to money problems. Next week, we will be exploring decimal tenths, understanding how they are linked to fractions and be able to order and compare them.


This week in English, we have been exploring The Many Adventures of Winnie-The-Pooh. We have shown great understanding by answering a range of questions based on our VIPERS. Then we became the many great characters, role playing the stories of AA Milne. We have then been working on both character and setting descriptions. Next week, we will be creating our own adventure for Winnie-The-Pooh and friends.


This half term, in Science, we are learning about light and shadows. This week we have learnt about sources of light and how shadows are created. We then created super shadows outside.


In PSHE, we have been learning about changes that happen from baby animals to adult animals. In RE, we have been identifying everything we have learnt about Christianity and Islam so far this year and then explored a range of artefacts from both religions.
