Welcome

Welcome back to another fun term at the Education Emporium. We have a fun-packed time planned for you. Both Mrs Fox and myself, Mrs Burns, are looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you.

English

During lessons we will be reading an amazing text called Cosmic, by an fantastic writer called Frank Cottrell Boyce. We will be exploring the characters and revealing the adventures that lie ahead of them.

 

Maths

At Sunny Bank we continue to develop a ‘mastery’ approach to maths. This term, children will be deepening their understanding of number, place value, the four number operations, as well as area and perimeter.

Science

Our science topics this term are Space and Forces. We will link our learning in science to our class topics as much as possible.

Topic

We will start off the Year with a topic focus learning all about space, linking with our Science and English.
