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.  

English

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.

 

 

 

 

Maths

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.

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.

Last weekend, a dragon attacked the school building. The vicious creature took an egg that Squirrel's class had been sent in the post. Here is the attack!

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.
