Our topic this half term will be 'Kon Tiki'.Throughout this topic, we will be designing, making and testing our own raft, similar to that used in the Kon-Tiki expedition, using numerous different hand tools and materials throughout. In Geography, we will be identifying how maps can differ, and we will begin to use lines of longitude and latitude to locate and identify places on Earth. 

In Literacy, we will be looking at narrative writing using the story Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We will be using the same text throughout our Comprehension lessons this half term. 

We will begin our brand new Science topic 'Titanic' where we will be using our working scientifically skills to explore some of the scientific concepts behind the Titanic. 

In Numeracy, we will be beginning our Place Value topic before moving onto the four operations.
