MATHS

In Maths we will be covering data handling. This will cover collecting information in tables, transferring this into bar charts and pictograms, and finally using their presented data to answer questions.

THEMED LEARNING

Our final unit this term is linked to International Week. We will be looking at Myths and Legends from Europe. Our focus myth will be Daedalus and Icarus, where the children will be taking on the role of Daedalus and creating their own marble run maze for others to play!

PSHCE

With International Week, it is a perfect time for the children to think about their place in the world and how other countries are similar or different to their home country and China.
