During this topic we will be looking at teeth and how to look after them. We will be learning about the jobs of the different types of teeth and once food has left your mouth, we'll be finding out where it goes and what happens to it. We will also be thinking about what we eat and how to eat healthily.
In English we will be writing explanation texts that link to our reading book 'How to Train your Dragon'
Later, we will be writing letters to persuade.
We will begin this term with geometry. We will be plotting coordinates, translating shapes and finding lines of symmetry.
Then we'll be looking at the four operations. Building on our work from last term, we will be developing our methods further and solve problems.
We will find equivalent fractions and also find fraction and decimal equivalents.
Our measure work will involve working with length and capacity (including converting between different units of measure).
In Science we will be looking at
Teeth and Healthy Eating
We will look at the different types of teeth and their jobs. We will also investigate at how to look after our teeth and what happens if we don't. Then we will find out what happens to food after it leaves the mouth, where it goes and what it is used for. Finally, we will look at why a healthy diet is important.
In guided reading we will be reading the book
How to Train your Dragon
By Cressida Cowell

This year we look forward to seeing growth mindsets in action. At times our learning may be tricky but by being positive and working hard, we will all be successful. We look forward to celebrating all your successes with you.
