The first story we will be reading is  Escape from Pompeii.  We will be looking at character traits meaning we will be focusing on how the characters in the books are shown. What are their personalities like and why do they make the decisions that they do? We will use this to base our creative writing around.

As our grammar focus we will be looking more at descriptive writing in particular looking at nouns and adjectives and how to stretch them further to push our writing to the next level.


This half term in Maths we will be looking at:

  • Fractions
  • Money

We will be continuing with our weekly multiplication check. Please ensure your child practises their times tables at home as well as completing challenges on Times Tables Rock Star (your log in is inside the front cover of your homework book).

Children have made remarkable progress with their multiplication knowledge. Thank you for your support in this.
