In our English lessons we will be focusing on writing persuasive letters and information leaflets. We will be reading non-fiction texts about London in our guided reading sessions and engaging in various cross curricular work about our trip to the capital.
In maths the children will be learning how to use written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will also develop a deep understanding of number and place value.
As part of our topic we will also be learning about the history of democracy and influential people past and present.
As part of this topic, we will be going on a trip to London on Thursday 14th September! The children will attend a workshop at the Houses of Parliament. They will learn about the government and how laws are made. We will also visit some famous landmarks, including the London Eye, as well as taking part in a walking tour of London.
