 This week we will be studying a model text based on a picture book called "Tuesday" by David Wiesner. By the end of the half term, we will have written our own stories based on the picture book around the theme "What do we see when we stop and look?"


 This week we are learning how to do the formal method for multiplication calculations; this involves a two-digit number multiplied by a one-digit number.  


Science:  Light and Shadow- We will be investigating and observing light sources. We will be learning about how light travels and seeing if light bends. The children will carry out an experiment with shadows.

Art: Drawing. In this unit of work the children will learn how to sketch in a variety of ways. They will be taught different techniques for shading and showing the light source. 

Knowledge Organiser


Knowledge organisers are the minimum knowledge each child should know by the end of a unit of work. They are a resource children have access to throughout lessons and are used to find out/ answer questions and build upon their current understanding of the topic.
