SPELLINGS AUTUMN 2021:
Spellings will be tested on a Friday morning and will be tested in the form of a dictation. This means new words will be put into full sentences to ensure children have an understanding of their meaning as well as their spelling.
We will begin after half term, by exploring the characteristics of different types of rocks. We will carry out investigations and explore the composition of soil. We will also learn about the fossilisation process.
The children will be carrying out several investigations to explore the factors that affect the growth of plants, such as light, air and water. They will also learn how to identify and describe parts of flowering plants.
Stone Age to Iron Age:
As part of this topic, the children will be learning about this time period and how it has impacted on modern day Britain. They will learn about how early man survived in a harsh environments and how copper mining was crucial to the Bronze Age. We will also look at why and how Stonehenge was built.
