In English, we will be reading ‘Viking Boy’ by Tony Bradman and studying the language and techniques used in the book, inspiring our own creative writing. We will be consolidating our work on relative clauses and parenthesis, as well as using more advanced punctuation. We will be continuing to develop our comprehension skills in reading.
In Maths, we will start by learning how to calculate area and perimeter. We will move on to developing our understanding of fractions. Fractions, decimals and percentages will be a major focus in the Spring term, with most of the term spent studying this topic.
We will study the Vikings and trying to find out if the Vikings deserve their vicious reputation. In this history topic, we will be focusing on changes during the Viking period and the ways different people across the period lived. We will also look at different accounts of the Vikings throughout history and draw our own conclusions. We will make our own moving toys based on toys that Viking children might have played with. We will learn some songs about the Vikings and listen to some Viking inspired folk music.
This half term, we will be learning about irreversible and reversible changes as part of our ‘Materials’ topic.-
This half term, our PE sessions will be based on multi-skills for our outdoor PE and gymnastics for our indoor PE.
