 Over the next 8 weeks up to Easter we will be reading Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare in English. We have also seen a fantastic production of the play in our school when a theatre group came and performed it for us.

In IPC we are continuing to experiment with forces including gravity and upthrust.

In maths  we will look at area, perimeter, ratio and then statistics.

Our new RE curriculum starts this term and we are looking at the Eucharist and what this celebrates.

In PSHE we are talking about healthy lifestyles, both physically and mentally.

Finally we are continuing with our weekly Spanish and P4C lessons.

Oh, and just the small matter of the SAT's round the corner in May, for which we are already well prepared.

Phew! We are busy!

All our topics change each term and we always look at a fantastic book in our English lessons.

This term we are writing fiction based on The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. We will write diary entries and newspaper reports based on this book as well as a possible narrative piece. The children's writing continues to impress and they will be asked to be be more independent and edit and improve their work even more this term to make it really sparkle.

In maths we will be working on the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages and then on to algebra. We are whizzing through maths topics with ease so we have lots of time to revise on the run up to SATs in May.

Our IPC topic is Fantastic Forces and we will be looking at everything to do with gravity, resistance, buoyancy, drag and friction. Lots of fun experiments to carry out!

In RE we are looking at Christianity on the run up to Easter.

We are looking at dreams and goals in PSHE.

PE is with City in the Community and is on a Tuesday afternoon.

We also have regular Philosophy for Children lessons.

Lots to do and lots to learn; we're looking forward to it!
