Our Learning
 
Topic / Writing
All our learning happens through our topic and this term our topic is World War 2. We will be exploring how the war affected Great Britain. We will learn all about Plymouth during the Blitz and experience what it would have been like to be an evacuee. Children will do lots of interesting writing in the form of a narratives, recounts and poetry.
 
Maths
We will begin this term by continuing to lean all about fractions - the children have already been working hard this term and have shown great perseverance and pride in their achievements. We will then end the term by learning all about decimals and percentages.
 
R.E
Other faiths- We will be learning about Judaism and what their main beliefs are.
Lent - This unit will help develop the children's understanding of the Temptation of Jesus and the symbolism of Lent. Ways in which we prepare for Easter in Lent are explored at a deeper level and knowing that preparation for Easter involves becoming more like Jesus. St Paul provides a quick guide for how this can be achieved.
