Maths:

We will continually be recapping topics that we have covered this year to keep our skills sharp. Our main new topics for the term will be fractions, decimals, and percentages. We will begin by deepening our understanding of what a fraction is, how to find equivalent fractions, and how to use fractions in calculations before we progress on to looking for decimal and percentage equivalents. It is really important that you know all of the x and ÷ facts up to 12 x 12 by heart as these facts will be tested regularly and they will help you to answer questions across the maths curriculum.

 

English:

We will be writing stories, newspaper reports and non-chronological reports based on our class novel and some other interesting topics too. We will also be reading and writing instructions to help us with our DT work. We will continue to work on our spelling and we will continue to improve our handwriting; making sure that all of our letters are formed properly and that our work is always presented neatly as this is important for the new English Curriculum assessments. We will be working on punctuation and grammar every day to improve the accuracy of our writing. We will also be working hard on reading comprehension skills to develop our understanding of the texts we read.
