Our reading focus text this half term is 'Goodnight Stories For Rebel Girls' written by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.
Throughout our lessons, the children will learn all about the inspirational lives of several women who led remarkable and extraordinary lives and who helped to make changes to our lives today.
Whilst exploring the lives of these extraordinary women, the children will make predictions, develop their understanding of new vocabulary and how this is used in context. They will read and retrieve information from the text as well as drawing inferences, summarising the main ideas from the text, explaining how and why the author has organised information in a particular way.
The first part of the Autumn Term will be spent developing and securing children's understanding of number and place value.

This haf term, we will be focusing on the topic - Materials.
Throughout this topic, we will explore the following:
· Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity and response to magnets.
· Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution.
· Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating.
· Give reasons, based on comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, woods and plastics.
· Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes.
· Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate soda.
