Our learning:




This term, we are exploring the book Flotsam, written by David Wiesner. This book links to our Science learning 'States of Matter'. 



This Spring term in Maths, we are learning all about decimals.


Can you remember what a decimal is used for?

Can you remember if tenths are bigger or smaller than ones?




In Science, we are learning about States of Matter.

In DT, we will be designing and creating a healthy meal. 



In Geography we are continuing the topic 'Passport to Europe', looking specifically at 'rivers'.

We are exploring and comparing the River Seine, France and the River Irwell, Manchester. 

We are eagerly awaiting our trip to Clifton Country Park.

You are all shining superstars!


Miss Wallis.
