In art, we will be looking at a whole host of different artists, we will be using these artists’ work as inspiration for our own original work as well as recreating famous pieces of work. In maths, we will be developing and building on what we’ve already learned in Lower Key Stage 2, moving on to more formal methods of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication as well as looking at problem solving and reasoning activities. In science, we will be carrying out investigations and experiments as we learn about topics, including: Earth and space and properties of materials as well as looking at the life cycles of mammals and amphibians.
