Autumn 2

What we will be learning about in Autumn 2

This half term we have a new class reader- the wonderful Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. We will be using this as a basis for our learning in English, exploring characters, settings and time adverbials.  In Maths we are focusing on perimeter and multiplication and division. We can't wait to see who will reign supreme in our times table-athon! In Science, we will be finding out all about the animal kingdom and how they digest food. We will also be starting our very exciting Polar Explorers work. And in our topic work we will be finding out all about rivers. We can't wait to get started! 

Merry Christmas! 

We hope you all enjoyed the party and that you have an amazing time over Christmas 🎄🎄🎄

We look forward to seeing you all in 2019 🌟🌟🌟
