This term we are becoming engineers. Using activities from the Dream Big project, we will be looking at problems engineers face in their everyday lives and how they creatively solve them.


This term we will be using two core texts to base our writing on. Firstly, we will use “The Story Machine” by Tom McLaughlin as inspiration and make our own picture books. Then we will be exploring “Firebird”, a traditional Russian ballet. We will be writing balanced arguments based on the events of the story.


This term we are focusing on telling time and decimals to two decimal places. Follow the link at the top of the page to practice on IXL.
