In our writing lessons, we will be using Harry Potter as a stimulus to write fantasy stories, non-chronological reports and adverts. We will be focussing on improving our language choices, sentence structures and the impact our writing has on the audience. We will also be working hard to improve our spelling and ensure this is applied within our writing.  



In our shared reading lessons, we will be developing our skills by reading and understanding the text across a range of genres - both fiction and non-fiction. Our main focus will be on understanding vocabulary and improving our inference skills. 



In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and how these can be represented in different mathematical structures. Alongside this, we will be practising our arithmetic skills daily- including times tables for those children who are not yet fluent in them.
