City of Cuture

As the City of Culture year comes to a close, Hull will be embracing the final chapter 'Tell the World'. In our classroom, the children will be exploring the question 'How did the Vikings change Hull?'. We will look at their original settlements and how their society influenced the City of Culture we know and love today. 

Literacy

This term the children will develop their story writing skills through a number of texts. One of these being, the magnificent 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell.

We will start with some five part story writing and move on to non-chronological reports.

Our new learning will include fronted adverbials, paragraphs and using speech to move a story forward.

Numeracy

This year, the children will become confident in working with 3 digit numbers. Maths this term will be heavily focused on the partitioning and addition. Children will learn to solve any 2 digit plus 2 digit calculation using partitioning, number lines and column addition independently. 

In other areas of Maths, the children will be learning about perimeter and data handling. 

Science

This term, our science focus will be forces and magnets. The children will be taking part in many hands on practical experiments and developing their scientific vocabulary. To begin, we will be observing how magnets attract or repel each other and identifying magnetic materials in and around the school.
