Our Literacy focus for this half term will be Explanation texts and Legends.


During the first 3 weeks we will be writing an Explanation text linked to our Science, which will focus on the forces of flight.


Please take look below at some of our Explanation texts.



For the next 4 weeks, we will be reading and immersing ourselves in the Legend of Gelert before writing our own.





This half term, we are looking at forces. The children will be designing paper aeroplanes in order to explain the effect of air resistance. Through this investigation, children we be working scientifically by making predictions, controlling variables and reporting findings.




The children will also be exploring gravity and the impact it has on our lives.







Design Technology


Fly to the Line-UK primary schools glider challenge

This term the children designing, constructing testing gliders as part of a nationwide competition organised by the Royal Air Force (RAF). During the process of making the gliders, children will be using different skills including: cutting accurately and safely and joining and combing materials.

Our key question throughout the year in RE is ' Where can people find guidance on how to live their lives?' 

This half term we will investigate Christianity (The Church). The focus question for this unit  is ' How do people decide what to believe?' We will discuss our shared experiences, investigate different beliefs and values and explore living religious traditions. We will create drama sketches from scripture in the bible.
