What are we learning about this term?



Term 5 (Summer 1) 



In Maths this term we will continue the work we began at the end of Term 3 looking at Fractions. This will include looking at equivalent fractions as well as adding and subtracting fractions. Following this we will begin looking at telling the time, we ask that you can support this at home by discussing time and asking your child what the time is on clocks at home.

With our Times Tables we will continue to review the 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s and 4s but will be introducing the 8s.



Our literary theme this term is ‘From mystery to discovery’ and we will be exploring texts including Mr. Penguin: The Lost Treasure and The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. As well as discussing and dissecting the texts through our lessons, pupils will also be given opportunities to write in response to the texts. With regard to The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, pupils will be exploring the illustrations and creating mystery setting descriptions, using a variety of grammatical and authorial tools, going on to creating action, suspense and drama in their middle-sections and endings. In the final part of the sequence, children write their own mystery stories, based upon a place of local interest, of which they have collected photographs or images, and publish them in a class collection for others to read.



This term our focus in History is Invaders and Settlers. This will see the children build upon their prior knowledge of The Celts and The Romans to gain and understanding of how the Vikings, Angl-Saxons and Normans played a part in the history of The United Kingdom.



Our key question in Science this term is ‘What do the different parts of flowering plants do?’ Through this topic children will learn the different parts of a flower and what they do as well as the individual parts of a flower itself. They will look at a plants life cycle as well as how they stay healthy, reproduce and disperse their seeds.



This term we will also be swimming, please find information below regarding this.
