We're nearly at the end of the school year- it's come so quickly!
There are a lot of very exciting things happening this term; we can't wait to share them with you.
Our linked learning topic for this term is 'Rivers' and in our Science work we will be looking at Evolution and Inheritance. In Geography, we will be focussing on the Amazon River and Brazil. Our RE topic for this term looks at special places.
We are also looking forward to a trip to Lullingstone, where we are going to be exploring the area and taking part in various scientific experiments and some field work.
Our D.T project for this term is going to be creating a barge which we will hopefully be able to race once complete.
PE (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) this term will be rounders and athletics- all in preparation for Sports Day. All PE this term s outdoors so please make sure you all have the correct kit and a pair of trainers.
Our Literacy learning will include work on 'Journey to the River Sea' or 'The Great Kapok Tree', where children will be writing their own narratives.
We are very excited about out upcoming class assembly all based on our previous topic of the Sixties (with a little twist).
We hope you all enjoy what we have planned!
A quick reminder, due to the warm weather, please ensure children have a hat and sun cream available to them in school.
Term 5 - THE SIXTIES
Term 5 already and this term is all about Space and the Swinging Sixties! We will be starting off by looking at The Solar System in our linked learning sessions and exploring the famous HG Wells text of War of the Worlds in Literacy. The children will be writing their own suspenseful stories about alien invaders!
We will then be exploring explanation texts to do with The Solar System: some will attempt to write their own explanation texts whilst others will be writing non-chronological reports.
The home learning project this term is all about Space and the children can choose an area of this topic they would like to investigate and learn more about. We look forward to seeing the projects presented to the class during the week of the 15th May. Their WW2 projects were fantastic and so varied - they included reviews of WW2 books, a play dough vegetable garden, numerous posters on a variety of themes, cooked foods, PowerPoint presentations and home-made Gas Masks. We are really looking forward to seeing what they present this term and appreciate the work that goes in to these on the parents parts too!
In the latter half of the term we will be learning all about the Sixties - an age where many changes happened. We will be exploring important events, trends, popular cultures and comparing them to our lives now. We cannot wait to see what the children make during our afternoon exploring sixties fashion and when we make our tie-dye t-shirts! We will be exploring Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in our art lessons too.
We will end this term with a Sixties party so get thinking about your outfits!
