Our topic this term is:

 

Arctic and Antarctic

 

As part of our topic we will be delving into the geography of the Arctic and Antarctic. We shall learn about lines of latitude and longitude, different climates and wildlife found in each geographical location. 

 

This term in Maths we will be converting units. We will learn how to convert metric units and look at converting imperial units. We will move on to working with shape in maths. We will be learning about area, perimeter and volume. Towards the end of the term we will be revising fractions.

 

In English we shall look at recounts and the key features that are found in this type of writing. We will focus on grammar and look at relative pronouns, the active and passive voice and modal verbs. We will be moving on to learning about monologues and we will look at the monologues in Hamlet. Towards the end of term we will be looking at different types of poetry and extending our knowledge of poets. 

 

 

We shall continue to use a mastery approach to teaching to develop our fluency, problem solving skills and reasoning, using a variety of pictorial, abstract and concrete resources. 

 

This term in science we will be looking at the Earth, Sun and Moon. This will include:

  • describe the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system
