In English, we will be writing our own autobiographical recounts and reading recounts from prominent astronauts. We will be looking at newspaper reports and producing persuasive advertisements. We will be continuing to focus on our reading skills through regular guided reading sessions and whole class reading.
In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of fractions and decimals — ordering and comparing equivalent fractions, and ordering and rounding decimals. We will also be looking at measures– converting metric to imperial units and calculating area and perimeter.
Our topic this half term is science based. We will be learning all about the solar system and wider space, as well as important achievements in the field of space exploration. We will be visiting The Space Centre in Leicester and we are also hoping to host a Star Gazing Evening at school. In the later part of the half term, we will be learning about forces and applying our knowledge to practical investigations.
This half term, our PE sessions will be based on Quicksticks for our outdoor PE and Gymnastics for our indoor PE.
