In English this term, we are reading fairy tales written by the Brothers Grimm. We will use these stories to re-write their tales, write our own fairy tales and write non-fiction texts based on the events in the stories.



In Maths this term, we will be focusing on place value, counting, ordering, adding and subtracting. We will use all of this to help us solve problems as we learn more.


In Science, we will be exploring materials and their properties. We will look at how things are made of materials to support their purpose e.g.  Umbrellas being waterproof.
