What are we learning?
 
Topic
 
This term our topic is 'Stone Age to Iron Age'. We will be learning lots of facts about this period in history, and how to be a good historian. We will consider a range of sources from this time, and assess what they can tell us.
 
Maths
 
We are focusing on number and calculation this half term. We will begin with representing numbers and place value, moving onto addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
 
English
 
Our English work this half term will be linked to our topic, and based around the story 'The First Drawing' by Mordicai Gerstein. We be writing a range of longer pieces, including a diary entry, a character description and a narrative story. 
Important Information.
 
P.E.
 
Our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. Children will need to attend school on these days in full P.E. kit, which is black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, white t- short, black sweatshirt and trainers. 
 
Reading books
 
Reading books can now be brought into school and changed daily. The expectation is that you will hear your child read 3 times per week. 
 
Homework
 
Reading comprehension books and maths workbooks have now been sent home. These will be kept at home. Each week, I will set which pages are to be completed on seesaw. Please take a picture of your child's completed homework and upload to seesaw. Homework will usually be set on a Friday, to be completed by the following Tuesday.

We compared and discussed different artefacts from the Bronze Age. We answered the questions ‘what do you think this was used for?’ and ‘who do you think owned this object?’
