For Maths we will focus on multiplication and division, factors and multiples, squared and cubed numbers and problem solving. We will also look at area and perimeter.


In RE the children will be exploring the story of the annunciation and focusing on Mary the mother of Jesus, much of this will be explored through Art.


In History will be looking at the history of space exploration including the first moon landings, people in Space and ordering the events.


As part of our Art focus the children will be making their own space mission patches for our space camp week.
