In writing this term we will be looking at the book Claude in the City. We will be writing in character as Claude the dog, in the style of a diary entry. We will then think of a new adventure for Claude. We will plan and write our very own adventure story starring Claude and his best friend Mr. Bobblysock.


In maths we are going to look at length first. We will look at units of measurement such as metres and centimetres and learn how to measure objects accurately. We will then move onto the topic of fractions. We will learn how to find fractions of shapes and also fractions of numbers.


In science we will be looking at animals including humans. We will find out about life cycles and what animals need to survive. We will also look at healthy eating, nutrition and what it means to be healthy.


Mr Wicks will be teaching Computing to the class. This term the children will be learning how to create stop motion animation films to tell their own version of Claude's adventures.


In geography we will be looking at the local weather and looking at weather around the world. We will focus on the local area and make maps to show the area around our school. We will also look at language such as North, South, East and West and how to use these words in geography.
