What an amazing first term we had!
We recapped all of our place value number which will help us to secure new mathematical learning.
We used the film 'Paperman' for our sentence stacking and wrote our own story based on 'Miles to Fly'.
We learnt all about electricity and light. We enjoyed the opportunity to explore these scientific concepts using experiments.
We looked at British Heroes and learnt about the impact that they made on their society.
Here are some photos from the term: 

In our second term, we focused on letter writing and wrote a letter to Scrooge persuading him to celebrate and love Christmas. We really worked hard on our vocabulary choices.
We learnt a lot about fractions and really persevered to develop our knowledge and understanding. 
In science, we learnt about micro-organisms and how these can easily spread. We carried out an experiment to show this. 
In art, we first looked at graffiti artists work and had a go at creating our own name tag. Also, we studied the artist Pablo Picasso and created a piece of artwork in his style.
