Core subject Focus Areas: 

Guided Reading:

The Jaguar Stones, Middleworld written by J&P Voelkel will form our guided reading text this term. Children will embed inference skills and will continue to be given opportunities to develop their fluency and oracy skills throughout the curriculum. In order to continue supporting the school’s priority of reading, please encourage your child to read on a daily basis at home. Question your children about the books they are reading in school and at home and help develop your child's love for reading using our top tips guide on Showbie.


We will be focusing upon reading a variety of myths linked to the Maya topic including The Rain Player by David Wisnewski as well as exploring the famous Viking saga- How Odin Created the World.

Writing will follow the ‘Talk for Writing’ strategies and children will continue to develop their written skills in a range of ways.


Our Maths lessons will cover decimals, percentages and converting between units of measure.
