This term we will be reading 'Meerkat Mail' by Emily Gravett and 'Billy's Bucket' by Kes Gray. We will be using these texts as a stimulus for story writing, instructions, non-chronological reports and descriptive writing. In Maths we will be working hard on multiplication and division, fractions, position and direction, place value (to 100), money and time.
Our topics are 'Why can't meerkats live in the North Pole?' and 'Which plants and flowers would Little Red Riding Hood see on her walk to Grandma's house?' We will compare the Kalahari desert to the North Pole, looking at climate and classifying animals that live there. We are also looking forward to a visit from Animal Magic and keeping our fingers crossed that they will bring in meerkats. We will be looking at the parts of a plant, planting some seeds and using our geographical skills to design a map using a key. Another busy term!
