This term we are thoroughly enjoying reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell-Boyce, about a young boy Liam who ends up in space. As we enjoy delving into this we have written diary entries, described space and written persuasive letters complaining to headteachers. We are looking forward to finding out how he got there!
We are learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. We have added, subtracted and even multiplied fractions. We have found fractions and percentages of amounts and compared them. We are continuing to rehearse our times tables and test ourselves with our times table challenges.
Through this topic the children will develop a greater knowledge of the Solar System and learn about the Moon, planets and significant individuals including Galileo and Newton. We are excited about our visit from the astrodome on 7th November.
