We are readers & writers

In English, this half-term we are going to be writing our own folktales from different cultures, using the fabulous book, ‘The Girl who speaks Bear.’ We will continue to develop a range of sentence structures; use descriptive language and draw upon our knowledge of using dialogue. In reading, we will be exploring a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry to help us summarise, sequence, infer and retrieve information.


We are mathematicians

This half-term in maths we will be learning about symmetry. We will be completing symmetrical patterns; identifying lines of symmetry in different polygons, as well as completing polygons using given mirror lines.

We will draw upon our learning from autumn term, to help us learn about how different animals and humans depend on each other for food and energy.
