Happy New Year and welcome back!
We have a very exciting term ahead planned! Our first topic of the year will be "How Humans Work." We will be looking at our teeth, what they look like, what their role is and how to care for them. Then we will move onto digestion and look at how our food moves through the body, especially which organs are important to the process. At the end of term we plan to take the children to "We are curious" (was known as @Bristol) to learn more about this.
In English, we will be looking at Charlie and the chocolate factory, we will design our own chocolate and be writing our own version of the story.
In Maths, we are learning about negative numbers, solving tricky problems with all 4 of the operations, measuring with money, length, weight and capacity. Then we will be looking at time again!
