This term our topic question is
How extreme is the Earth?
We will be investigating volcanoes and extreme weather all around the planet including volcanoes and earthquakes! In history, we will be looking at the Romans: who they were, why they invaded, their customs and what we still use today that they brought over with them!
We have already started making plasticine Earth models and will be moving on to making paper mache volcanoes - THAT ERRUPT soon! Keep checking back on this page to see our progress!
In English, we are starting to look at Personification and will be moving on to Newspaper reports before February half term.
We will be using skills such as adjectives, similes, metaphors and much more to make things come alive!
In maths our children have really amazed us!
We follow a 5 day programme:
Day 1 - place value, addition and subtraction
Day 2 - geometry and data handling
Day 3 - measures
Day 4 - multiplication, division, decimals, fractions and percentages
Day 5 - Mathematical reasoning
Have a look below at some of our super work we have done in class:
The children also all have a sumdog account. Please encourage your child to play on this at home. 20 minutes a week is the goal.
RE - This term we are learning about Hinduism. We will be finding out all about this amazing religion, the customs, beliefs and buildings too.
Science - This term we are learning all about states of matter - what is a solid, liquid or gas? How do they each behave? Can something change from one state to another? What does freezing or melting do to an object?
PSHE - This term we will be looking at the British Value of Individual Liberty - what this means, how we get it, how we can help other people get it and our rights and responsibilities.
All work can be sent to
