The main focus is to learn about Spain in Geography.   We will be looking at where Spain is and how its landscape and climate affect life in Spain.  We will be looking at the culture of Spain.

 

In English, we start by writing mystery stories based on the Harris Burdick pictures.  We will be teaching use of adverbs, fronted adverbials, strong verbs and how to use dialogue.  In the second part of term, we will be writing a persuasive brochure about Spain using paragraphs, persuasive phrases and  exaggerated adjectives.

 

In Maths, we finish a unit on area and then begin to work on fractions and decimals.  We will revise what a fraction is and the use of the denominator and numerator to find fractions of shape and number,  We will find equivalent fractions. simplify fractions and add and subtract fractions.  In decimals, we will understand how tenths and hundredths are another way of showing specific fractions.  We will learn to count in hundredths and place hundredths on a number line.

 

Our science focus is sound and we study how sound is made and pitch and volume are varied. We look at how sound travels and how materials can insulate sound.

Ancient Egypt Day

 

The children had fantastic fun on our special day.  They all made a magnificent effort to dress the part and  took part in a drama exploring finding objects in the tomb of King Tutankhamun. They explored Egyptian number system and hieroglyphics.  They were able to practise their skills making a mummy.  Using the computer, they made deductions about objects and then researched about the journey to the after life.
