What are we learning about this half term?

In Maths, we are developing our key skills in multiplication and division. By the end of the half term, we will be able to recall our 3, 4 and 8 timestable facts with fluency!

In Science, we will be learning all about light. We will find out how we see, how shadows are formed and even how to stay safe in the sun!

In RE, we are thinking about the kind of world Jesus wanted. We will be making links between different Bible stories and the importance of love in the world today.

In PHSE, we are developing our understanding of what different families are like. We will be exploring why family is important and what makes a positive relationship.

In Computing, we are exploring the importance of our online reputation and online bullying. We will be finding out about what we should and shouldn't share online and appropriate ways to behave towards others online.

In Geography, we will be finding out what is happening to the Amazon Rainforest. We will discover all about what goes on in the rainforest, the interesting animals that live there and what the climate is like.
