Over the course of this term, we will cover:
We are focusing on stories in a historical setting (the Victorian era) such as Oliver and writing our own narrative.
We will also be looking at Charles Darwin's voyages and using his experiences to write diary entries and non-chronological reports.
We will be looking at co-ordinates before moving on to working with decimals and percentages, and learning how to confidently convert between fractions, decimals and percentages.
