ENGLISH:

I was born in the Stone Age by Michael Rosen.

During this term the children will be learning all about life in the Stone Age! We will explore different text types, from this poem, to narrative extracts. We will be exploring different perspectives of the Stone Age, and how authors have used historical periods to inspire their writing.

The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.

After half term, the children will be reading this class text about a mysterious iron giant. They will be given the opportunity to debate and write persuasive texts, whilst forming their own opinion of the Iron Man. Was he a villain? Or was he a hero?

READING RECORDS:

You will receive a new reading book three times a week. These days may change each week. Remember, if you finish your book you can read it again or continue reading a library book at home.

MATHS:

Fractions, Time, Properties of Shape, Mass and Capacity.

This term, the children continue learning about fractions. Then we will revisit and learn more about time, focussing on how to tell the time to the nearest minute. After half term, we will look at recognising and describing 2D and 3D shapes. In our last unit, we will revisit what is meant by mass, capacity and volume before building on this knowledge.

SCIENCE:

Plants

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.

Rocks

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.

TOPIC:

As part of this topic, the children will be learning about this time period and how it has impacted on modern day Britain.
