In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions, position and direction and decimals. As before, this will be underpinned by a weekly arithmetic lesson. Please ensure that your child has secure knowledge of the times tables up to 12 x 12, with their corresponding division facts. These should be practised at home on a regular basis through Times Tables Rockstars.

We will also by studying Animals Including Humans in Science, where we will be studying the circulatory system.
