Maths

Measurement - from conversion of units (from length to volume), we will then look at problem solving with measurement before moving onto:

Perimeter - complex shapes (eg multilinear)

Area - or complex shapes including triangles and trapeziums

Volume

Please do encourage your child to use Timestable Rockstars at home too - everyone has a free login. It can be accessed from the website or by downloading the free app.

English

Wonder continues - it has been great to read the book from another character's (Via's) perspective.  What will happen next?

We move onto a 'big write' build up - this term will be an instructional text.  Without giving too much away, the task will have a Mayan theme............... 

Mrs Stanford's session on Monday will focus on Imperative and Modal verbs which will directly link with instructional texts.

The children will also spend a session using spag.com, honing some of their GPS skills and knowledge.

Science

Carried over from last week (Sports leader training clashed) - We will continue our magnetism module, by creating and investigating a Fariday's torch.  Specifically, we will look at electro-magnetism and how electricity, magnets and cathodes can be used to either make electricity or create motion (eg in a motor). 

Time permitting, we will also start a seperate session focussing on Electricity generation including renewable energy sources.

PHSE

Mrs Stanford will lead a PHSE looking at each other emotions and how we can manage them in different scenarios.
