Using and understanding fractions and decimals as money is a focus for the beginning of this term. We will also be looking at time and measurement including area and perimeter of shape. Revision of multiplication and division facts is an ongoing target for the children throughout the year.
In English this term we are studying some works by Michael Morpurgo including Adolphus Tips and Pinocchio. The stories will come to life as we explore the characters and develop our own writing based on the key features of the stories. We will be working hard to improve our handwriting and develop our punctuation and knowledge of grammatical features. Also this term we will be celebrating a week of poetry, the works of William Shakespeare and World book day.
Our creative topics this term are Italy and Gepetto’s World (Puppets). We will be researching Italy and its physical features, including volcanoes. We hope to enjoy designing and creating our own puppets using textiles and other materials.

In the second half of the term we will be developing our performance skills in preparation for our Easter concert.
