Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Last term we were busy writing stories set during WW2 where we thought about how communities can work together to save things. In this instance, it was the village library. We had to consider how people were feeling, and how responses can be emotional. In Maths, we finished our work on exploring Fractions, which led into working with Decimals and Percentages. We are now really able to see how they are all linked together. We finished our work about Tudor Monarchs, we can now talk about the similarities and differences between them. We have also started our learning about Biomes in Geography and how they are all different. Earth and Space had us learning about the Sun, Earth, Moon and the phases of the Moon.

Next term we will begin our English by going back in time to the time of the Egyptians, where we will be writing the biography of a Pharaoh. We will then move onto creating persuasive pieces of writing around the topic of Plastic Pollution. In Maths, we will complete our work on Decimals, look at Properties of Shape, and investigate Position and Direction. In PSHE we will be learning about ‘Food for Life’.
