Term 2 Overview

We are learning about healthy living: healthy diet, exercise and the effect of these on the human body. We will also be preparing for our Christmas Year 4/5 show in dance and music. Design Technology and Art are also linked to the Christmas theme and in R.E our children will be learning about the meaning of Advent.

In English we will be reading “The Borrowers” by Mary Norton and our writing will be drawn from themes in this book.

In Maths our focus this term will be on geometry, fractions, statistics, measurement, decimals, percentages and calculation methods.

Special trip notice

Each class will also be visiting Hailsham Community College this term, as part of their transition programme. Dates to be confirmed.
