In our English lessons next week, we will look at the Water Cycle. We will be focusing on the following objectives:

  • To develop a positive attitude and stamina for writing with a focus on non-fiction
  • To use a range of punctuation
  • To use a range of sentences with different forms: statement, question, exclamation and command
  • To make simple additions and revisions and corrections to their own writing


This week in Maths, we will focus on problems and problem solving. Our learning objectives covered will include:

  • To solve number problems with both number facts and place value
  • To read and use a variety of language linked to problem solving
  • To solve problems using the four operations


Our current topic is ‘Water World’. Water is important to all living things; without water there would be no life on Earth. We use water every day and we depend on water to stay clean and healthy just like the many plants and animals we share our world with.

As Geographers, we will investigate saltwater/marine environments. We will begin the week by asking the children to name examples of both freshwater areas (ponds, rivers and streams etc.) and saltwater environments (oceans and seas). The children will look at the differences between the two and we will discuss the types of living things that might be found in these habitats. We will then use a range of sources to research marine animals and plants; we will focus on coral reefs, open oceans, deep oceans and polar oceans.

BBC nature has videos and photographs exploring wildlife of various marine environments.
