This term our topic is Allotment and Beast Creator.We shall be learning all about plants and insects. We shall be working outside in the garden area at school to plant lots of different vegetables. We shall study their life cycles and explore pollination and germination. Lots of plants need a pollinator to make sure seeds can grow so we will also look at some of the insects found in the UK. Why don't you have a trip to the World Museum in Liverpool to have a look at some of their insects? They have drawers and drawers of butterflies and beetles.
We shall be reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo for English and writing reports on mini-beasts.
In Maths we shall be reminding ourselves about rounding, multiplication, division and percentages.
We shall also be learning about puberty. A letter to explain his will be on its way soon.
Please make sure your child has a water bottle in school everyday and a hat when/if it gets hot.
