Term's 3 Topic

Will we ever send another human to the moon again?


We will be looking at the scientific knowledge we hold about space and we will have a look at the news to find out what we can about the two news items: Ultima Thule and the dark side of the moon.  If you find out anything new please bring in the information into school.  

We will be linking the science topic to our literacy work by carrying out work linked to the text 'A Wrinkle in Time' by Madeleine L'Engle. 

In Maths, we are going to be looking at the 4 calculations and written strategies but a continued focus on the multiplication tables needs to be had both in school and at home to develop our pupils' knowledge and recall speed.
