The children will write a non-chronological report, persuasive text and writing in role.
This term, we are consolidating children’s knowledge on number making sure they build on place value, addition and subtraction! Also, we will be solving word problems!
In Science, we will be looking at Habitats. This topic covers what different environments animals live in and why they are suited to that environment. The children will look at their local area and take photos of what they have done.
