    Maths
    This term we will be looking at a variety of different concepts including decimals, percentages, algebra and measurement (converting units of measure and calculating perimeter, area and volume). We will be developing our fluency and using and applying skills.

    Science
    Our Science topic this term is Living Things and their Habitats. We will be investigating how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics, based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals. In a series of practical activities we will work scientifically by using classification systems and keys to identify some animals and plants and research unfamiliar species and decide where they belong in the classification system.


    P.E.
    This will be every Thursday afternoon and will be outside where possible. Please ensure your child comes dressed appropriately that day, with a change of t-shirt if necessary. During times of home learning, we recommend some form of daily exercise to be undertaken. This may be a walk in the local area, a bike ride or an online exercise program, for example Joe Wickes.
