My favourite book is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. Having been an avid horse rider for most of my life, I was over the moon when I first discovered this book when I was around ten years old. I remember the excitement of turning the first page and feeling like I was being transported back in time to something quite magical. Black Beauty is a touching story told from the view point of a black horse who recounts the tales of his life. From his simple beginnings as a foal in a meadow through the ups and downs and twists and turns, Black Beauty tells his own story which illustrates the importance of kindness towards animals. I have read this book so many times and I can honestly say that the more I read it, the better it gets!

My favourite book is The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie. When I first got my hands on it, I read the whole book in one day! The story is about a boy called Daniel who stumbles across a shop that contains magic and wonders beyond belief. However, when the shop's existence is threatened, Daniel and his newfound friends are thrown into a world of danger. With its extraordinary characters and exciting plot, this book keeps you on your toes and is impossible to put down!

Summer 2
 
Welcome back everybody, we hope that you've all had a lovely relaxing half term break. For our Maths this half term, we will be delving into the mathematical world of Geometry where we will be learning how to use protractors to draw lines and measure angles, learning about angles on a straight line, at a point and those that are vertically opposite as well as looking at angles in a range of shapes including triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons. In addition to this, we will be developing our mathematical reasoning through themed projects which will consolidate our learning throughout the year. 
 
For our English, we will be watching a short film called ' The Ridge' focusing on the purpose of ' writing to entertain'. This will tie in nicely with our topic learning for the half term which is titled 'Magnificent Mountains'. The focus for this will be Geography and Art. In our Geography lessons, we will be learning about the different mountain types and their formation and the impact of tourism in this environment. In our Art lessons, we will be focusing on developing our sketching techniques and applying these to observational drawings. 
 
For our RE, we will be looking at Humanism and answering the key question, ' What matters most to Humanists and to Christians? For this unit, we will be exploring what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live. This will enable the children  to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
 
The children have voted for their class book for this half term and we will be reading 'Eren' by Simon.P.Clark. 
We hope you find the resources below easy to access for supporting your child's learning at home and understanding the key objectives being covered. The list below includes:
 
-Knowledge Organisers
This explains the key information and facts your child needs to know by the end of their topic unit with some visual aids and key vocabulary we will learn too.
 
-Calculation Policy 
This provides you with information about the key mathematical concepts and how these are taught during this Key Stage.
 
-Recommended Reads
This document lists texts we would highly recommend your child to access and read during their year group. Pupils are encouraged to select from this range of books.
