In English this term, we will be reading the book 'Hidden Figures'. We will be exploring the idea of segregation and discrimination faced by women and people of different races in the past. We will be learning about the life and legacy of Katherine Johnson; one of the first black women in NASA, who successfully helped Apollo 11 land on the moon.


In Maths, we will be starting satistics; looking at how to draw, read and interpret the data presented. We will be diving deep into the vocabuarly used, which will allow the children to effectively compare the information on the graphs. We will also begin to look at multiplying and dividing by the powers of 10. We will have a special focus on new languages such as; prime, composite, squared and cubed numbers.



In this topic of "Circle of life" we will be exploring how species including plants reproduce and affect our planet. The children will have the opportunity to investigate the different processes needed for the completion of the circle of life. We will also be looking at the different lifecyles, that exist in the animal kingdom.


In our religion lessons this term we will be learning about "Life Choices" and how this enables us as Catholics to fulfil the mission of Jesus Christ and how we can be better apostles of Christ.



In Geograph we will be learning about 'Our Local Area' and how it has changed over the years.
