Our current topic is …

 

LOOKING AT STATES OF MATTER

 

As scientists we will:

  • Compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases.
  • Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C).
  • Identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.

As mathematicians we will:

  • Interpret and present discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs
  • Count backwards through zero to include negative numbers

     

Our current class book is...

How to Train Your Dragon 

by Cressida Cowell

English

We will be starting a new writing unit based on the book 'The Lost Happy Endings' by Carol Ann Duffy and Jane Ray. We will be writing a twisted narrative and a persuasive letter.  

Maths

Our maths work this term will follow the White Rose scheme of learning, we will be continuing with fractions.

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we also ask each child to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs as part of their homework. Please work on the KIRFs for Spring 2.
