In English, we will be looking at suspense and mystery texts. We will be learning how to write exciting and gripping stories, using our language and sentence structures. We will also look at the techniques that are used in the 'The Old Mill' in order to keep the readers engaged and interested in the story. 


In Maths, we will be focussing on fractions and percentages, units of measure and various other areas. We will also be using problem solving in order to apply our knowledge. How much do you know about these areas of Maths so far?


In Science, our topic will be forces. What forces act upon different objects? Why do we remain on the floor when we stand? We will explore the different forces that act upon objects and what happens if one force is stronger than the other. We will make predictions, explaining our thoughts, and set up reliable and accurate investigations. Let's investigate together!


In Geography, we will be learning about North America. What do you know about North America already? How many countries are in North America? We will discover the answers this term.
