Maths

This half term we will look at time and how to read 12 and 24 hour time. We will revisit calculation to help develop deeper learning and we will begin looking at geometry

English

We will be using our Chocolate topic to support children’s writing. We continue to encourage the children to build their self-editing skills and using planning effectively for writing. We will also focus on presentation, particularly handwriting to help children build up their pace.

Topic and Science

Science : Upper Key Stage 2 – properties of materials; Lower Key Stage Two - Rocks Topic: Chocolate. This topic will be covered over the whole term. This first half term will have a history focus, with the children investigating a contrasting society – in particular the Mayans. They will study Mayan daily life and try Mayan food. They will look at the explorers who first encountered the Maya people. Children will also design a new chocolate bar.
