 Our Science theme this term is Dangers to Living Things. In this unit, children will be constructing and interpreting food chains, identifying producer, prey, consumer and predator. They will also realise that the availability of food is an important factor when considering how animals respond to change in the environment. They will consider how humans can reduce the impact of some environmental changes.

  • Reading logs need to be in school everyday and you should be reading at least 4 times per week with an adult. Remember to get your reading log signed. 
  • Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on a Friday. This gives you a full week to learn your spellings.
