This half term in English we will be learning all about descriptive writing, basing our work on 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes . We will practise using different sentence starters, expanded noun phrases and adverbials to make our writing more exciting !
This half-term in Maths, we will look at Rounding and Place value of numbers with up to 4 digits and start practising column addition and subtraction of 4 digit numbers.
In addition, we are always practising and developing our times table knowledge!! Here are some maths games that you can play at home to help learn our times tables...
In Creative Links, we will be looking at a variety of landscapes, practising using different techniques to draw and paint some of them using famous artists such as J.M.W Turner and William Morris as an inspiration.

Homework Project – Our Library - to be handed in by Tuesday 1st November.
This term has begun with huge excitement in school as we have begun the renovation of our library. So far we have constructed an almost life size Cherry Tree in the atrium, added a raft of brand new books and rebanded all of the existing ones to allow the children more choice together with a faster progression through the levels of books. We are awaiting the delivery of some new seating too.
To enhance this area further we would like the children to complete their project this half term specifically to enhance this area further, with work from them based around their favourite books. This could include a favourite character, setting, plot or indeed the whole story.
There are some ideas below but please feel free to let their imagination run wild and be as creative as you like.
Book box – this is a story displayed within an open shoe box
Models – any kind
Mini books where they have retold their favourite story
Any original stories that they have written and illustrated
