Our topic this term is called ‘Alchemy Island’. This is mainly a Geography topic so we will be looking at different geographical features. We will also have a look at artwork by an artist called Roger Dean who has created fantasy style paintings involving dragons, castles and fairies. We will attempt to recreate our own style of painting similar to Roger Dean’s paintings.

In English for the next 3 weeks, we will be having a look at a non fiction text called ‘How to live like a Stone Age Hunter’. They will have a look at the way the book has been written to make it interesting to read as well as the language used. They will create their own information sheet with some of the same features as identified in the book.




In Maths this week, the children are learning about fractions and their decimal equivalent.
