The children read their individual reading book most days during silent reading sessions. Your child will share their book with a member of staff once a week. In addition to this the children take part in a guided reading session daily. This half term the focus in reading is answering literal questions and summarising the events in paragraphs and whole books. 



In English lessons the genre is information texts. The children are applying their Stone Age learning to create their very own information text. The children will be learning to:

- Plan his / her writing by discussing and recording ideas within a given structure. 

- Draft and write by organising writing into paragraphs as a way of grouping related material. 

-Draft and write non-narrative material, using headings and subheadings to organise texts. 



This term the Science focus is forces and magnets. The children will learn:

- Compare how things move on different surfaces.

- Know that forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance. 

- Describe magnets as having two poles. 

-Compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet and identify some magnetic materials. 



To kick start our 'Stone Age' topic, the children were set the challenge to find out what the diet of Stone Age humans would have been like. Pupils investigated Stone Age poo!!! (Don't worry it wasn't real!)

Science friction experiment

Maths - experimenting with digit value and place value

Google Legends - E-safety

Stonehenge - the children learnt all about the mysterious stone structure, then had a go at making their own.

Design Technology - the pupils measured and cut various types of wood to create the chassis for the start of their car. All children were very safe and really enjoyed using a variety of tools.
