Term 5 Overview

Our topic for Term 5 is ‘A Bug’s Life’, during which we will be learning about Minibeasts. Each week we will focus on a different creature, with a story as a starting point for each. We are hoping to have a number of exciting events including: a ‘Bring your snail to school day’, Minibeast visitors, hatching ladybirds and cooking (not the ladybirds!).  Our Term will finish with ‘The Ugly Bug Ball’. More details to follow!

Our maths will focus on numbers to 20 this term and we will be trying out lots of different types of writing including poems, facts and lists.
