  • learn about great artists in history

How to Train Your Dragon

English

We will be continuing our writing unit based on the book 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy and Jane Ray. We will be writing a twisted narrative and a persuasive letter.  

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be looking at decimals.

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we also ask each child to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs as part of their homework. Please work on the KIRFs for Spring 2.
