In English, we will then be writing explanatory texts, using conjunctions and adverbs to express time and manner. We will then be considering the structure of an adventure story, incorporating dialogue to convey character and develop the narrative. Lastly, we will be writing and performing our own poems using figurative language and onomatopoeia. In our Reading lessons, we’ll be continuing ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ before diving into our next core text, Varjak Paw. We will be focusing on the difference between fact and opinion as well as looking at the mood, emotion and feeling of the narrative.


In Maths, we’ll be focussing on decimals and fractions, looking at tenths and hundredths. We aim for the children to be confident in converting decimals into fractions and vice versa. Then, we will be moving on to explore money. In these lessons, we will be converting between pounds and pence, using calculation and estimation. Finally, we will end the half term by learning about time on an analogue and digital clock.

History and Geography

This term we will be exploring our new topic of ‘All Aboard’ through history, geography and Design Technology. We will be looking at the development of the railways, travelling in Victorian times and considering why travelling on the railways would be a great experience.


In Science, we’ll be identifying how water animals have evolved to survive in their habitats and exploring how habitats affect living things. We will then be able to put our new learning to use when we visit the Horniman Museum.
