In our learning this half term we have been reading How to train your dragon; The day of the Dreader and using this in our writing to create Non-Chronological reports. We have learnt about how to make our writing formal by using subheadings and paragraphing.





For Maths we are learning about length and perimeter. We have practised strategies to convert between different units of length and how this can be used to find the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.




 For Science we are learning about the digestive system. We have looked at our own teeth and learned what their functions are. We will be following the digestive system to see how food travels through our body.



Special events this term have been Harvest. We learned what a harvest is and the different kinds of food gathered. We experimented in Art with how to capture the colour, shade and 3D depth of the food gathered. We then applied our Pop Art skills to create a Pop Art Harvest images.
