English: This half term we will be exploring Biographies. We will begin by learning about the key features, before writing a class biography on Charles Darwin and finally children will research and write a biography for a person of their choice. In the latter part of the half term will we begin reading and exploring David Almond's 'Skellig'.
Maths: We will be exploring place value and decimals, converting between fractions and decimals, long division and prime, cube and square numbers.
Science: We will be exploring 'Evolution and Inheritance'. If possible could children bring in a copy of a baby/childhood picture of themselves and a relative to demonstrate genetic inheritance- that would be really useful.
Topic: Our topic this half term is: World War 2. If anyone has any artifacts or family stories that they would be willing to share with us during this topic that would be great. We will be developing our design technology skills when we design, build, paint and evaluate a model of an Anderson Shelter.
P.E: Tuesdays- Gymnastics
Wednesdays- Orienteering. Please can children come dressed appropriately for the weather, we will be going outside on the grass weather permitting.
PSHCE: Good to be me.
Reading: Children will be taking home a reading book from our library every fortnight. I would love it if children could fill in a book review bookmark to help recommend and evaluate the book for potential readers.
P.E: We have P.E twice a week. It is really important that children have a full P.E kit, appropriate footwear, that their hair is tied back and that any ear rings have been taped over or removed.
Water bottles: Please can all children have a water bottle in school daily
