This half term we will be looking at:

English: we will be reading The Chocolate Tree, a Mayan folktale by Linda Lowery and Richard Kemp to support and develop our reading comprehension skills and inspire our writing. In Grammar we will be focusing on fronted adverbials and subordinate clauses.

Maths: In maths our main focus is place value, learning the value of each digit and how this can be represented in different ways, negative numbers and Roman Numerals.

History: We will be learning all about the ancient Mayan civilisation, when, where and how they lived. Focusing on their religion and culture.

Science: Our focus will be on the digestive system in humans and other animals, this will include grouping animals by what they eat and how to look after our teeth.

PSHE: Our focus will be on relationships and keeping safe. This includes how to maintain positive friendships including how this can be affected online.

Computing: in our computers we will be learning how to create music on different online websites.

Art: We will be creating printing blocks inspired by Mayan art and images.
