Maths - In this half term we'll be learning about what some people think is a complex subject, algebra!

After this, we'll move onto learning about ratio and proportion as well as carrying on with all our arithmetic practise.

We'll learn all the skills required and write our very own newspaper report based on something that we've read in WTMMTM. We'll also learn about some of the other different text types. We'll of course carry on practising our comprehension skills and look at the different types of questions and how to answer them.
