In Maths, we are focusing on our 3 and 4 times tables. We have been learning to cool songs to remind us. In addition to this, we are learning about place value in 3 digit numbers. We can order and compare different 3-digit numbers using the correct signs. 



In English,  we are focusing on a thought provoking story written by Michael Morpurgo called 'Cool!', which is about a boy who is in a coma. 

In Science, we are looking at movement and feeding of animals including humans. We will look at the certain types of nutrition all animals need and how we move.

In Geography, we are learning about natural disasters, including volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. We will see where they can occur and the effect that they can have.  

In RE, we are learning about belonging to God's family. We will look at the journey Jesus and his disciples took to be part of God's family and where we fit into this.
