Summer 2020

We have working on decimals in maths, moving on to adding and subtracting decimals to different decimal points. This week we are also answering problems based on this skill.

In English we are working on “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. After looking at the characters within this narrative poem and writing detailed character descriptions, we are writing diary entries and performing part of the poem.

In science, our focus is living things. After learning about the parts of flowering plants through diagrams and dissection we will move on to the other ways in which plants reproduce.

Our new history project is based on Rothamsted Park, what it was like in the past and how it has changed.

Our French learning is based around describing our appearance using parts of the body and also previous learning such as colours.
