Our topic this term is:

 

Volcanoes

 

As part of our topic we will be delving into the geography of volcanoes. We shall learn about:

 

  1. Locate the world’s countries, using maps to focus on Europe (including Russia) and North and South America.                                                                                                    
  2. With these countries, focus on environmental regions.
  3. With these countries, focus on key physical characteristics.
  4. Understand geographical similarities and differences , through the study of human and physical geography, between:- A region of the United Kingdom, region of a European country, and a region within North or South America. 
  5. Describe and understand key aspects of physical geography including climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts, rivers, mountains, volcanoes, earthquakes and the water cycle.

 

This term in Maths we will be learning about the four operations (predominantly multiplication and division) we shall also be looking at statistics. 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. 

 

In English we shall start by exploring the class book, The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein. We shall learn about how authors use language to contribute to meaning, organisational features of instructions and we shall complete our own adventurous writing in the style of The Hobbit.

 

 

This term in science we will be looking at forces. This will include:

  • ·Explaining that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object.
  • ·Identifying the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces.

  • ·Recognising that some mechanisms including levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect.

 

 


In PE we shall be taking part in swimming lessons on Mondays and gymnastics on Wednesdays with a specialist coach.
