Maths

This half term we are currently learning about fractions and we will then be moving onto Statistics.

We will be focusing on adding and subtracting fractions and multiplying and dividing fractions, including those with mixed numbers. Statistics will cover examining graphs and charts of different varieties, and from these, gathering and analysing data.

 

English

This term we will be studying poetry by Ted Hughes and also the art of debating.

We will be continuing to learn spelling patterns, working on our reading comprehension skills and using a range of high-level punctuation marks in our writing.
