Numeracy

As we move on through the steps of multiplication, we will continue to deepen our reasoning skills with many chances to manipulate number.

The Spring term will also give us the opportunity to explore fractions in depth. The children will have plenty of chances to recap previous knowledge and learn new skills such as how to multiply fractions.

We want to provide an environment where we all feel safe to try, challenge ourselves, succeed and learn from mistakes.

Literacy

During Literacy lessons, we are diving into our key text: Varjak Paw. This book will help inspire our own narratives and promote a love of story writing.

The children will be taught how to engage the reader, create tension and use specific literacy skills linked to five part stories. For example; paragraphing, speech and short sentences for effect.

Topic

This term we are exploring a science based topic. Our key focus is ‘Materials and their Properties’. We will use the world of WALL-E as our inspiration and the centre of our enquiries.

Our main learning aims will focus around comparing, grouping and manipulating materials. Also, our investigative skills will be tested when we learn how to separate different materials and look closely at reversible and irreversible changes.

WALL-E needs our help to find out what type of material world we live in?

Percy Jackson

Book club

During our daily book group sessions, we will be thrown into the world of Percy Jackson! Using Percy’s adventures, we will be practising our predicting, summarising and comprehension skills. Peer assessment will play a big role within these lessons and we will use each other’s knowledge and ideas. This magical book will also give us an insight into Greek mythology, mystery writing and the dark and dangerous under world.
