Dear Parent/Carer,
Next half term your child will begin a new topic ‘Kings, Queens and Castles’; this takes a historical approach to our learning. The topic
focuses on medieval life and traditional stories and fairy tales which feature Kings ,Queens and Castles. The class will visit Castle
Rising which will cover the history and geography curriculum.
The maths curriculum this half term covers addition and subtraction methods, rounding and estimating numbers, multiplying and
dividing, fractions and decimals and symmetry and angles of turn.
In science and Design Technology your child will learn about fair testing and recording data. This links to our topic as they will be
exploring strong materials with which to build structures such as towers and bridges. The children will continue to learn German words
and phrases and will also will experience a full day of RE.
