English

We will begin our English this term by reading our new class book (the worst witch). We will then immerse ourselves in the story by acting out scenes and hot seating certain characters. We will then use this to write our own persuasive speeches!.

Maths

In Maths this term, we will be covering fractions and mass and capacity. This will consist of the children learning up how order, compare add and subtract fractions, then moving to using tenths and hundreds (year 3's describing mass and capacity).

Geography

Our topic this term is geography - rivers! We will be looking at the key characteristic of a river to help us identify them on maps along with their features. We will also be looking at local rivers (River Brue), describing their different uses and the impact they have on us.

Science

Our next science topic this term is plants. We will be exploring the functions of plants, how they grow and their lifecycles. Alongside this we will also be investigating the way in which water is transported through them.
