This first half term we are basing our English around the graphic novel Slog's Dad by David Almond which explores questions about life and its meaning. We will write letters, diaries and a play script based on our ideas form the book and will sharpen our reading and debating skills by finding evidence to support our viewpoints. We will also look at different types of poetry and have a go at writing in different poetic styles. Finally, in the second half term, we will explore the travels of Charles Darwin to link into our Science topic and practice public speaking ready for the speech competition.


This term we have continued our work with fractions and geometry focusing on using reasoning and problem solving skills in connection with 3D shape. We wil also study ratio and proportion linking in to basic algebra and will revise our work on angles by looking at pie charts.


In term three we will learn about the human body including the circulation system, the effect of drugs and alcohol  and changes during puberty. We will also study evolution and inheritance.
