Autumn 1 - 2019
This half term we will be looking at the story 'The Viewer' by Shaun Tan and using this to inspire our writing. We will be writing our own short stories and focusing on a range of descriptive devices and developing our vocabulary.
In maths, we will be focusing on place value. We will also be practicing a range of arithmetic skills.
'What makes the U.S.A. so attractive to tourists?' - We will be investigating this line of inquiry as well as developing skills in map work and developing our own questionnaires.
This half term we are developing our tennis skills during outdoor P.E. lessons. Our indoor P.E. lessons will focus on street dance.
