Welcome to 4S - Mrs Sinfield's Class!

What has electricity ever done for us?

Our Spring term topic focuses on electricity and the all the wonderful things it does for us. We will be looking at famous electrical scientists and inventors who have changed the way we live over the last 150 years. We shall also be learning about electrical components and how to keep ourselves safe around electricity. Our D&T project will also focus on this area and we will use our knowledge of electrical circuits to create our own inventions.

Literacy

This term the children will write a range of text types based on our class book ‘'Street Child' by Berlie Docherty. Our writing will include non- chronological reports, persuasion and narrative pieces. We will become more familiar with a wider range of sentence structures, grammatical features and spelling rules.
