Our summer term will commence with a Tudor topic where we will be learning about the Spanish Armada and enjoying the Michael Morpurgo book, My Friend Walter. Through research we will plan and write a biography about the author. We will recap on our geographical skills and knowledge of the World. We will research who Sir Walter Raleigh is and find out who he was and what he did.
In Maths we will review our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills, using both pictorial and formal written methods.
In RE we will be learning about Hinduism which will give children an overview of Hinduism, focusing on its origins, core beliefs, festivals, special places. Children will explore the different holy books, identify key Hindu symbols and understand their meanings. In PHSE we will focus on the importance of honesty, trust, friendships and making good choices.
After the half term we will be focussing on climate change and take a look at the work and dedication of Greta Thunberg and Sir David Attenborough. Following our research we will be writing a biography, an explanation text, a persuasive letter and a story. We will be discussing what can be done to help the problems of climate change and what we can do as individuals. In our Art work we will study the inspiring work of the Australian abstract environmental artist, David Dahlsen.
In Maths we will focus on money, fractions, decimals and time.
In Re we will study the incredible life of Mother Teresa and have discussions on what actions in life are right or wrong and why?
Online Homework platforms will be shared and staff will direct each child through tasks that will reinforce the learning in class.
Please remember to get a copy of our class reading text which is Greta and the Giants and send it in with your child on the first day back after half term.
