Learning this half term
We will use Crime and Punishment through the years to write a non- chronological report.
Place Value, the four operations, fractions and percentages
Is there any justice in the world?
We will investigate the curiosity of Sutton Hoo and the treasure found there, thinking carefully about why it was placed there and the religious ceremony.
We will be using six-fig grid references, symbols and key (including use of OS maps) to build our knowledge of the UK. We will use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries and describe their features.
