In Maths our class will be looking at investigating decimals. Lessons will involve identifying the value of tenths, hundredths and thousandths and we will also look at adding and subtracting decimals from whole numbers. We will continue to improve our efficiency and fluency of mathematical operations in every lesson by looking at a range of strategies.
Our topic in Science this term is Living things and their habitats! Children will take an in-depth look at the life-cycle of plants and animals and their reproductive systems. They will consolidate their understanding with practical experiments, drawing on their mathematical knowledge to record their results.
