During Spring - Term 1, our theme will be ‘Amazing Animals’. We have a very exciting trip to Chester Zoo planned, early in the new term! Your children will be bringing letters home soon!
In English, we will be revising the features and layout of non-chronological reports. We will write our own reports about different exotic animals, including those found in the world’s rainforests. We will spend the second half of the term looking at poems with figurative language and reading and analysing fables.
This half term, we will be revising mathematical concepts including; number and place value, calculation, measurement, fractions and decimals, statistics and geometry.
Our science, this half term, will involve living things and their habitats. We will examine the life cycle of different animals; insects, mammals, amphibians and birds. We will look at the differences between these.
In geography, we will continue our study of South America. We will use fieldwork to observe, measure and record information and compare these to a typical village in the United Kingdom.
We have an exciting project for engineering for this half term. Keep looking for more information to follow.
As part of our learning in RE, we visited a Synagogue in Manchester. We learnt about the importance of the Torah and Simchat Torah and where Jews get their guidance.
