We will be writing a range of text types linked to food including recipes and instructions, nonsense poetry and adverts. We will be learning how to use a map, whilst developing our location and fair-trade knowledge. In Science, we will be learning about nutrition and how to keep ourselves healthy.


In Maths, we will be focusing on developing our understanding of Place Value, Addition and Subtraction. The children will be developing their mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills on a daily basis.


Please find a book list below which is full of books relevant to our new topic. If you get the opportunity to enjoy some of these at home that would be brilliant! Also, if you do have any of these books, particularly Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl which will be our class reader, please do bring them into school for us to share.
