Our topic for this half term is...                                                 

 Bon Voyage!

We will be exploring France by looking at its architecture and famous landmarks. To begin with we will learn about where France is in relation to where we live and then we will spend time looking at the city itself. We will also be inspired by the painting style of Claude Monet and other famous French artists to pick up our brushes to create amazing works of art.

In Maths we will be continuing to develop our multiplication and division skills involving the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children will use arrays, related facts, repeated addition, sharing and groups to help them during maths lessons. After this we will spend time recapping the additon and subtraction skills learnt last term.





PE kits are needed (shorts, t-shirts, pumps and trainers, jogging bottoms and sweatshirt with clear labels and in a named bag) every Monday and Friday. 

All children have homework books with a maths and literacy task and LCWC spellings. Children will be given these tasks each Friday and they are to be returned by the following Wednesday. 

Keep up the super effort with Reading! Remember to record at least 3 reads a week in Reading Records and bring them into school each day.
