We are beginning to start thinking SATs , so be prepared to hit the ground running . In grammar we will be learning about prepositions, prepositional phrases, pronouns (including possessive) , present perfect and the subjunctive form . Our guided reading text is called 'Middle World' and will take us on a Mayan adventure. We will also be writing our own instructions and learn why structure and well chosen language is important for the reader. Remember to practise your spellings, as we will continue with our daily quizzes . We will be using a fabulous book called 'From Bean to Bar' to inspire our writing, where will will go on a journey through time to see how chocolate travelled across the world to taste like it does today.
Our maths will be getting progressively more tricky, reasoning being the main focus . We will learn how to systematically tackle those four and five step questions . Most of the work for this half term will be centered around shape and measure. We will continue to do our weekly arithmetic tests and daily times table challenges to help your pace .
As part of our Chocolate project, we challenge you to........

The first correct list of answers will win.
We will spend our time looking at how our body works looking closely at the lungs, and building a model of working lungs using a bottle, balloons and an elastic band.
