In English,  we are focusing on using great story openers. Thinking about what would make a good opening to a story. What is your favourite story opener. 

In Science, we are looking at forces and magnets. We are looking at why some metals are magnetic and some are not. 

In History, we are learning about the lives of people who lived in Tudor times. We are looking forward to our trip to the Ancient High House in March!
