Our focus book is Firecat.  In Literacy we will be writing diary entries from 1666 and newspaper reports on the Great Fire. We will also be doing some non-fiction writing through Science.  In Maths we will be learning about multiplication as repeated addition, doubling and halving, division through sharing and grouping, fractions, measures and money.
