We are learning

This term we are learning all about Kenya! We are exploring its geography, culture, wildlife, stories, music and reading ‘Lila and the Secret of Rain’.

We are solving multiplication and division problems using concrete resources, pictorial representations and known number facts. We will also be investigating measuring length and mass.

In Science, we are writing about animals and how they adapt to their habitats. Our long term investigation is to see how the habitats around our school change throughout each season.


At the beginning of each half term, you will have a sheet with English and Topic homework for that half term. Maths will be set weekly on Fridays.
