Welcome back after the half term holidays. We are very much looking forward to the half term ahead.
This half term we will be learning about Florence Nightingale. We will be finding out about her life and why she was such a significant person in history and what she did to improve hospitals. In English we will be writing a non-chronological report about her and in Art we will be drawing portraits of her and linking the work we do to the artist Andy Warhol.
In Science we will be continuing to develop our understanding of materials and conducting experiments to find out more about them and why some are more suitable for certain things than others. We will be developing our ability to plan and carry out these investigations considering how we can make the test a fair one.
As well as writing non-chronological reports in Literacy, we will also be learning about how to write a sound poem based on the poem "The Sound Collector" by Roger McGough. We will be reading a traditional tale and then we will write our own. We will continue to develop our pleasure of reading and encourage reading at home.
In Math's we will be developing our understanding of money and the ability to find out money totals and solving money problems and finding change. We will also be developing our understanding of division and multiplication.
This term we are very much looking forward to learning about our topics 'Beside The Sea' and 'The Great Fire of London'. During our 'Beside The Sea' topic we will be learning about seaside towns and developing our map skills to find them. We will be comparing seaside towns in the past to how they are today.
Next half term we will be learning about 'The Great Fire of London' and we will be going on a trip to Staircase House in Stockport. We will be designing and then making our own Tudor Houses.
Thank you for your continued support.
