We will be writing short stories, fantasy instructions based on The Hobbit and a report on animals. As part of our writing, we will revise most of the grammar, punctuation and spelling taught in KS2. New content taught will be based around vocabulary for informal and formal types of writing.
Our class text for this term is ‘Holes’. Most of our guided reading sessions will be based around this text so it is important that children read it regularly (one – two chapter(s) per day).
We will revise arithmetic methods taught in KS2 and develop the accuracy of our answers. Children will develop number skills around multiplication and division such as factors and common multiples. Knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages will be developed, with these skills applied to more challenging questions.
