English this half term will see us exploring our core text, ‘Divergent’: a story about a female protagonist named Tris, set in post-apocalyptic Chicago. We will start by using drama to explore the text and the emotions the characters are feeling. Then we will write a diary entry in role as Tris to explore her feelings about her new life as a Dauntless.  Later on in the term we will be writing persuasive speeches to save the Divergents and commentaries of Tris’ initiation and experiences at Dauntless.

In mathematics this half term, we will be looking at place value and calculation. We will also be using investigations and mastery challenges to help us apply our maths learning in real life scenarios.  Please ensure that you learn and practise all of your times tables on a regular basis and log in to Mathletics at home as often as you can!
