Our topic this term is:

This link shows some of what we shall be learning about.

Our key questions are:

English: What can I infer from a character's actions?

RE: Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday? 

Geography: How would you describe our villages to a visitor? Which features are important enough to warrant being on a map of our local area? How are maps used to navigate a place?

In English we will be focussing on the text "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes and using the ideas to inspire our own narrative writing which we will plan, draft, edit and redraft. In Geography we will be developing our mapping skills and in art we will be drawing faces. In Science we will be investigating magnetism.
