This term, we are learning about 'Land of the Free'. In Geography, we will explore the countries and capital cities of North and South America. We will use geographical vocabulary to describe places across the Americas. We will look at the climate and biomes of different regions and study the physical and human features of places. We will then compare this to our local area. 

Please make sure you are reading at home at least 3 times each week and recording it in your reading diary. I will check them each Wednesday.

Homework is given out on a Thursday and expected back in on a Monday.

Spellings are given out with homework on a Thursday and tested the following Thursday.

PE is on a Wednesday and a Thursday afternoon.

Please make sure you are practising your times tables at home.
