Later in the half term we shall begin to construct a motorised vehicle using cutting and adhering techniques. 


In English we are going to be studying Like Clockwork by Phillip Pullman. We shall begin by delving into the story and unpicking language choices, the audience, purpose, setting and characters. Our unit will culminate in the children writing their own Clockwork inspired story openers.

This term in science we will be looking at 'Scientific Inquiry.' This will include:

  • planning different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary

  • taking measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision, taking repeat readings when appropriate

  • recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, scatter graphs, bar and line graphs

  • using test results to make predictions to set up further comparative and fair tests

  • reporting and presenting findings from enquiries, including conclusions, causal relationships and explanations of and a degree of trust in results, in oral and written forms such as displays and other presentations
