Building Learning Power:
Our learning muscles will be stretched this term as we focus on absorbing key terminology useful to our learning in different subject areas. We will be reasoning when we hold discussions and capitalising when we apply our learning to different contexts, including real life problems.
In addition, we will be reading and analysing a variety of short fantasy stories. These stories will be used to help us develop an established and confident voice in our own writing. To conclude, we will be looking at ‘slam poetry’.
We will also be extending our knowledge of coordinates and plotting points in all quadrants. Finally, we will be looking at units of measurement and conversions.
This term, we will learn about flowering and non-flowering plants and their different parts. We will also be looking at the cells which carry genetic chromosomes in humans. The children will also be examining the life cycle of humans and different animals and their features.
The children will be challenging themselves with solving codes ranging from Morse code to the semaphore signalling system
