We practise our Times Tables and number bonds every day.

In History, we are going back in time to the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age and learning about how they found food, where they lived and what their beliefs were. We shall interpret and use evidence to answer our questions about the past.

In Music, we are adding percussion to our ‘Skeleton Song’
