Our topic this half term is called ‘Sweet like chocolate’ We will learn where chocolate is grown; how chocolate is made and the importance of chocolate within the Aztec culture. The children will also design and make their own chocolate. An exciting trip to the chocolate story in York has been planned, which you should have received details about.
In maths, we will focus on number. This will include: place value, addition and subtraction. Children will also be provided with Mathletics passwords. Please encourage them to use this at home.
Our Literacy focus will be cross-curricular work on chocolate. We will be reading Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Philip Pullman’s Clockwork.
How to stay healthy will be our first Science unit. We will look at what makes a balanced diet, how exercise keeps us healthy and the importance of nutrition. We will then move on to changing state.
