Welcome back! We hope that you had a lovely rest over the half term and are ready for lots of new learning as we head towards the Easter holidays!
During this half-term, our English will once more be based on a high quality text. The topic of this will link closely with our science for this block and will be based on the earth in space. We won't give any more away just yet as we don't want to spoil the surprise - but we know you will love this one!
In Maths we will be focussing lots on fractions this half term, as well as the four number operations, angles and decimals.
For our geography focus we will be considering 'Is Fair Trade fair?' The geography Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below.
In Science our focus will be a physics-based one. We will be working on the theme of Earth and Space. The Science Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below.
In Art, we will continue tofocus on sculpture and 3D art. In music, we will explore a new unit of singing and composition. In Computing, our focus will be on creating games.
RE will focus on sacrifice as we journey through Lent towards Easter.
P.E. for Class 5 will be each Wednesday and Friday and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days. We will continue to swim on a Wednesday afternoon. Our Friday PE session will be a dance lesson for this term.
A Homework Timetable is attached below..
