In English, we have been learning how to write explanation texts. We had great fun learning about the ‘Teacher Pleaser’ machine and thinking about other machines that could make our lives easier. In maths, we have been focusing on addition and subtraction as well as problem solving. In topic, we are focusing on geography and physical and human features of landscapes, particularly in the UK. In science, we are exploring our solar system and had fun learning a mnemonic in order to remember the order of the planets: ‘my very educated mother just served us nachos’! In RE, we have also been exploring Christmas through art and music.
