Welcome back to Ockbrook class!

 

Our topic this term is:

 

Stone Age to Iron Age

 

 

 

In English we are going to be studying Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K.Rowling. 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 Harry Potter inspired story openers. 

 

Also this term...

In Maths this term we will focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages, this includes:

  • fractions and their equivalents in decimals and percentages
  • Multiplying decimals
  • Finding a percentage of a number
  • Ordering decimals
  • Multiplying numbers by 10, 100 and 1000
  • Dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000
     

 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 'Properties and Changes of Materials.' This will include:

  • comparing and grouping together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets;
  • knowing that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution;
  • using knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating;
  • giving reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic;
  • demonstrating that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes;
  • explaining that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.

 

In PE we shall be taking part in gymnastics lessons. With some of the objectives including performing an arabesque and forward roll, children will then put these skills into a sequence which will be performed to the whole class.
