In maths, we will focus on place value and the four operations. We will be exploring light in science. We will find out how light travels, how we see and investigate shadows. In RE, we will learn about Islam and how Muslim beliefs are expressed in practice. We will be looking at biomes and climate zones in our geography work and will focus on desert and grassland biomes. In art, we will use our sketchbooks to develop our drawing and collage skills. We will explore sea shanties in music. Our focus in PSHE will be managing friendships and peer influence. In PE, we will be looking at dance through the ages and football. Our computing work will focus on designing and developing computer programs. Finally, we are very excited to start learning Spanish as our new modern foreign language!
