During this topic we will be finding out about different crimes and their punishments during different historical periods.  We will start with Roman times, move on to Tudor times, look at what happened during the Victorian era and finally look at crime and punishment today.   

English

In English we will be finishing our stories linked to climate change using a short film called The Oceanmaker.

The OceanMaker

After the seas have disappeared, a courageous pilot fights against vicious sky pirates for control of the last remaining source of water: the clouds. http://www.oceanmaker.com

Then, we will be writing a discussion text about graffiti.  We will discuss if graffiti is vandalism, or is it art?

Maths

We will begin this term by solving problems involving perimeter and area. We'll be looking at the four operations, particularly division.  Building on our work from the previous term, we will be developing our methods further and solve problems involving units of measure.

Our measure work will involve working with length, mass and  capacity (including converting between different units of measure).

In Science we will be looking at

Habitats

 

 

 

We will look at how living things are grouped.  Then we will look at our local habitat and try to identify different living things found within it.

DRAGON ATTACK!

Last weekend, a dragon attacked the school building. The vicious creature took an egg that Squirrel's class had been sent in the post. Here is the attack!

This year we look forward to seeing growth mindsets in action. At times our learning may be tricky but by being positive and working hard, we will all be successful. We look forward to celebrating all your successes with you.
