Term 3 - Comparing Then and Now

We've come to the end of another wonderful term, full of learning and excitement. We've learnt a lot about Harry Potter, investigated area and perimeter and explored how immigration has helped shape Bristol. We're now ready for a good break so we come back fresh and ready for the next action-packed term!

Just a reminder, children have been given a Maths revision booklet where they can recap on mathematical topics already learnt and apply it to different situations - but don't forget to keep practising those times tables! More revision booklets will be distributed soon.


Other home learning could include reading everyday, practising spellings within context and writing a diary entry for any exciting adventures you may go on.


As our topic is 'Bristol Now and Then', if you have any relatives who lived in the area and have any memories of how Bristol has changed, you could interview them and record their memories.

Term 3


After a relaxing and well-deserved break, we are ready to learn once more!


This term our topic is 'Comparing Now and Then' which involves learning how to use the skills of an historian to compare and contrast a range of primary and secondary sources. 


In science, we will be investigating adaptation and inheritance, a fascinating topic that will allow the children to consider some of the most important questions of the modern age.


In English, we will be unpicking our new text to help us create our own, non-fiction piece of writing using our skills from the Talk for Writing scheme.


Meanwhile, our maths lessons will move into an investigation of units of measure which will allow the children to make comparisons between a range of different units.
