This term is jam-packed with lots of exciting projects and activities I am sure you will enjoy.
Our main topic for this term is 'Rivers', this will be incorporated throughout both our Literacy, Numeracy and Linked Learning lessons in order to create a well-rounded picture of the topic as a whole.
In Literacy, we will be reading various of fiction and non-fiction texts in order to give us an idea of how to write river poems, river stories and setting descriptions. We will also be looking at something new this term and will be using what we learn throughout 5 weeks to write an explanation texts about a 'River's Journey'.
Throughout our Numeracy lessons, we will be focusing on Measure, Geometry and Statistics. We are going to link this to our environment and the 'rivers' topic, for example, we will be going outside to look at angles around us and will be using cross-curricular links with Science to answer questions relating to graphs.
In D.T we will be creating a river model using mod-rock so please make sure you have your art aprons at the ready!
Our home learning project this term is to create a rain gauge and conduct your own scientific investigation to explain how rainfall can be collected.
We will be having our 'Growing Up' talk this term- letters regarding this will be sent home shortly.
