Spring 2

Spring 2




This term we will be learning to create a documentary about global warming and climate change and the effect this is having on polar bears. Our documentaries will include explanation, persuasion and poetry. We will perform our poems with intonation, tone, volume and action .

Then, we will read the novel The Last Bear, which will help us to write our very own narrative story opening. 



This half term, we will be working on data handling. This means looking at how information is represented in a variety of charts and graphs. We will then start working on fractions and how some fractions are equivalent to others.


You need to continue learning your times tables.


   In History, we will continue learning about the Anglo Saxons. We will find out about the king Alfred The Great and why he became famous. 

We will understand why the year 1066 was so important and we will also find out about something called the Bayeux Tapestry. Have you heard of this. Maybe you could do some research.


Link to concept questions, 



Is power always a positive thing?


Does change always make things better?

    During our engineering lessons, we will be producing a scene from the Bayeux Tapestry in textiles.

We will be following the skills of an engineer - investigating, designing, making and evaluating.

We will develop control of a needle and thread and Join fabrics using running stitch, over sewing, back stitch. 


 In Geography, we will be looking at the water cycle and using the correct vocabulary to explain this process. 


In Science we will be learning about states of matter, solids, liquids and gas. We will learn that some materials can change their state and measure the temperature in which the changes take place. 

Linked to our work on Geography, we will know the part played by evaporation ad condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature. 


In Art, we will be concentrating on collage and using a variety of materials to practise the skills of sharp cutting, tearing, scrunching and twisting. We will also use rubbings taken from the school environment and colour washes. We will first try out our skills by producing a landscape.

We will then look at the work of Richard Hamilton and Peter Blake, pop artists. 

Using this pop art style, we will link our work to our learning about climate change and produce a split page collage showing how global warning is affecting our world.



We will look at ways of carrying out shared responsibilities for protecting the environment in school and at home and how everyday choices can affect the environment (e.g. reducing, reusing, recycling; food choices)



We will also understand about the features of positive healthy family relationships and friendships such as mutual respect, trust and sharing interests.


Link to concept questions, 


What does it mean to be a citizen?


Is being part of a community the same for everyone? 


In RE, we will be answering the question,

How do Sikhs express their beliefs and values?

Article 14:  Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights.



In Orienteering, we will follow our Whole School Cross-Curricular Orienteering Scheme of Work. We will be cooperating and working together as a team to complete challenges. We will generate ideas, try out different solutions, follow concise instructions and use individual strengths. We will support and encourage our team members.
