English
We will be examining the book, 'The Owl who was afraid of the dark'. We will retell the story in chronological order and will focus on our super punctuation, including apostrophes and commas in lists!

We will also focus on creating our own information texts about animals and their habitats. We will ensure that we organise and present these well.

Geography
We will be making connections with our brilliant science topic as we examine where animals come from. Watch out as we swoop into action and discover what the climate is like in these different places, and how certain animals are well adapted to living in these conditions. We will also begin to compare these environments and may even create some art work to show what they are like.
Computing
In this unit we will understand that data can exist in a variety of forms, including in databases. We will explore a branching database and answer simple questions. Also, we will focus on sorting and grouping data using yes/no questions. We will create a simple branching database, test, review and debug content.
Art
We will become creative artists as we explore Van Gogh's 'Starry night' picture. We will use a range or artistic materials to react creatively to this famous work of art.
