In English this half term, we are looking at Classic Poetry, with a focus on the poem 'The Owl and the Pussycat’. We will also be looking at Persuasive Writing towards the end of the term and creating our own persuasive advert to our 'zoo'. In Maths, we are looking at measure, addition and subtraction, fractions, geometry and time. In Geography we are learning about Africa and in Art we are practicing lots of different skills. We are creating animated books and composing music in Computing, learning about Judaism and Christianity in RE and finding out all about animals, including humans in Science.
