Current Topic -  ‘Water, Water, Everywhere’ - Summer Term 5

This term we are learning about water, including how rivers are formed and the water cycle. We will be discussing the impact humans have on the environment and how settlements develop around rivers . Our English texts are ‘The River’  by Patricia Hegarty and  'Where on Earth? Rivers’ by Susie Brooks. Using these books as a starting point, we will be writing explanation texts. 

In Art, we will be learning about Seurat and the pointillism style of painting.

In Maths, we will be learning about decimals, money and time. 

We will also be continuing to practise our time tables.

Every Wednesday, we will be swimming and on Thursdays we will be doing tennis followed by basketball later in the term.

  • Daily reading for approximately 20 minutes
  • Times tables practice through TT Rockstars and Top Marks
