In English, we are beginning with a fantastic cultural story about separation and loss called ‘The House with Chicken Legs’. This will sharpen our inference skills as we interpret what the author’s intent is through this mysterious tale based on Russian folklore. In maths, we will be polishing up our mental strategies and our standard written methods of calculation by applying them to a range of problems in real life contexts. We will also be looking at calculating with fractions and conversions of measures.
We will be looking at the country of Mexico in geography and then one of Mexico’s Ancient civilisations in our history unit on The Mayans. Our DT this term is a woodwork task to make birdhouses and our art will focus on traditional South American styles.

Spring term update:
Wow! We packed a lot into spring term. We had our second online meet-and-greet with an author of this academic year when we met Sophie Anderson, author of ‘The House with Chicken Legs’. She was really inspiring, and equally impressed by our English work this term.
We handled tools brilliantly well when we designed and made our own bird feeders and houses. We’ve also been busy representing school in football and dance competitions.
