This half term we will begin with our Science topic 'The Animal Kingdom and Evolution'. We will explore how living things change over time and how plants and animals adapt to their environment. We will also learn to describe the ways in which water and nutrients are transported within animals, including humans.

We will begin by expanding narrative through powerful description. This will then lead us on to a range of non-fiction text types including persuasion, non-chronological reports and recounts.

Our spelling, grammar and punctuation focuses will include:
-    Carefully chosen vocabulary and the use of synonyms.
-    Advanced sentence structure using different punctuation.
-    Varying the length of sentences for effect.
-    Relative clauses.
-    Paragraphing.
-    Creating cohesi

In Maths we will be focusing on rapid recall of facts, both addition/subtraction and multiplication/division. We will be developing fluency of written methods using the four operations and applying these skills through problem solving and reasoning. 

As always there will be a focus on recall of multiplication and division facts to 12x12. Remember to practise your times tables regularly at home, as this will support you in all areas of your Maths work!  

If you would like to find out more about what we will be learning this half term then please refer to the 'Files to Download' link below, where you will be able to find our curriculum map for the first half of the Autumn term.

I look forward to an exciting and busy first half term with Class 21!

Miss Hough.
