Spring Term 2

21st February - 1st April


Into Africa - How is Africa different to our own continent?


This half term we will be learning all about Africa. We will be focusing on the continents and oceans in our geography lessons, thinking carefully about how the equator impacts the weather. We will learn about African animals, such as elephants, wildebeest and giraffe. Our writing focus, will be non-chronological reports to inform and stories to entertain. 


Think about what learning you could do at home to support you with your topic. 

To support my learning at home I can...


Read regularly and discuss what I have read

Please read every day with an adult and write this in your school diary.

Remember you can read online too using Myon and Collins Ebooks


Practice my maths work

Please complete the maths challenges set by your teacher on Mymaths through google classroom, use Numbots and practice your fluency skills by completing calculations


Practice my spellings

Learn your spellings every week, ready for our test on Friday


If you have lost any of you log in details for our online resources, please ask your class teacher.
