Our Learning
Topic / Writing
All our learning happens through our topic and this term our topic is the Earth and Space. We will be looking at the similarities and differences between the planets, moons and sun in our solar system.. Our writing will be influenced by space poetry and persuasive texts.
We will begin this term learning about statistics and how they are used in everyday contexts. Later on in the term we will then focus on developing our knowledge of multiplication and division. The children will use their prior knowledge of multiplication and division to solve more complex word problems. Finally, we will end this term learning about perimeter and area.
In R.E, our theme is sacraments for the first 4 weeks, we will then move on to Advent and conclude the term focusing on Christmas. 
Sacraments- In this first unit, we will recap the 7 sacraments then focus on the qualities and meaning of marriage. Later on, we will then compare marriage to the commitments made to god when Holy orders are taken.
