Class Teacher - Miss Knott
This term we will study the novel Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce which explores the journey of 5 children who accidentally get lost in space. We will be writing in character and exploring formal and informal language through the use of letters. We will continue to develop speaking and listening skills through drama activities and debates.
In maths we will consolidate our understanding of multiplication and division. We will then move on to study fractions, decimals and percentages. As with all topic areas we will continue to develop our problem solving abilities through completing different challenges individually and in groups.
This term we will study Earth and Space. The pupils will make their own project books based on research they have done and what they have learned in class. We will continue to develop investigation skills including designing investigations, recording results and analysing results. Below are photos of the class creating a scaled model of the solar system using toilet paper squares to measure distances. It was very challenging on a windy day!
Our topic this term is Space. As part of the topic we will look at how transport and exploration has changed over time.
