WHAT ARE WE LEARNING ABOUT?
|In Reading and English, we will be learning about our topic, Plants and animals through our class novel, The Boy Who Grew Dragons. The children will be writing a story opening for their narrative writing based on our book.|
|We are also going to be learning all about the life cycle of a flowering plant and writing an explanation text about the process.|

- To write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication using tables that they know
- To recognise angles as a property of a shape or a description of a turn
- To identify right angles, recognise that 2 right angles make a half-turn, 3 make three quarters of a turn and 4 a complete turn
- To identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle
- To identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines
- To write and calculate mathematical statements for division using multiplication tables they know, using mental and progressing to formal written methods

Our topic is Plants and Animals this half term. The children have been given the question: Can we grow dragons? It is based on our class novel 'The Boy who grew dragons'.
To enable them to grow their own dragons, they need to have a good understanding of:
- What are the parts of a plant?
- What do plants need to grow well?
- How is water important to plants?
- How do seeds travel?
- What do animals need to survive?
- How are skeletons different?
- How do our muscles help us?
