There are three texts that we will be focused on in English this year, starting with Holes by Louis Sachar. The children will develop new skills such as relative clauses, semi-colons and brackets and apply them to a range of writing genres. They will use the books as a basis for writing as well as developing reading skills.
Numbers will increase to seven digits this year as children continue to extend their mathematical knowledge and skills. Children will learn to multiply by two-digit numbers as well as divide three-digit numbers.
English and maths learning will be supported by homework tasks on a weekly basis that should be completed by all children. Pupils are also encouraged to read at home on a regular basis to support their reading.
Foundation subjects will be taught through a topic based curriculum. Topics include ‘Stargazers’, ‘Beast Creator’ and ‘Allotment’. The topics will encourage children to make cross-curricular links and investigate a range of subjects through exciting trips, tasks and projects. The subjects will engage the children and provide challenge whilst feeding their curiosity about the world we live in today.
