This half term we will be continuing with our castles and knights topic. Our focus this half term will be dragons! In Science we will be looking at what plants need to survive, we will be planting seeds and watching them grow. In English we will be reading a range of books linked to dragons including ‘George and the Dragon.’ We will also use parts of the film ‘How to train your dragon.’ to support our writing. We will be writing instructions on how to train a dragon and writing a piece of descriptive text for a wanted poster.
In Maths we will be focusing on how and why we use the inverse operation for addition and subtraction, solving two step problems and estimating. Our RE topic is praying and we will be answering the question ‘How and why do people pray?’
