WELCOME BACK TO TERM 5
We hope you had a relaxing Easter break and are ready for some GREAT learning.
Follow this link to find Knowledge Organsiers for this term.
This term, our learning is focusing on investigating ‘Why might some of the UK be under water in 2050?’ Through this we will be developing our knowledge of countries and cities within the UK, identifying their human and physical features. Using this knowledge, we will be comparing similar terrains within the UK, Europe and America. In addition to this, we will learn more about flooding and the impact it has on different locations.
Working scientifically is VITAL to developing scientific knowledge and understanding. We will be building on the skills we learnt last term to plan and carry out an experiment.
In Maths we will be recapping our knowledge on area, perimeter and volume of different shapes and learning about ratio.
Monday and Tuesday are our PE day this term with a focus on Tennis and Dodgeball.
In DT this term we are focusing on food technology. Your task is to design, make and evaluate a survival food parcel for Zoe for her travels.
In RE we are focusing on salvation with a focus on answering this question: What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?
We are lucky to have our local PCSO visit us this term to talk about internet safety, drugs and alcohol.
We are really excited to see you all.
