Summer Term Week 4

 

Wow, I can't believe we are in the penultimate week of term already.  In the week that would have been SATS, I have give you a silly SATs  paper just to mark the occasion. Our main maths focus is the long division- you will all be experts by Friday. 

We are looking at biographies this week in our literacy and I thought we could use Boris Johnson as our model write. ( Topical and someone you all know.) Our extended write will be a biography of  William Harvey the father of Circulation.  This is the doctor that first came up with theory of circulation.

Art is a nod to our glorious NHS and their fight against Covid 19.

Our Spring 2  Topic: ID

 

Who do you think you are? During this half term, we’re going to find out what makes us the people we are. We’ll meet a mysterious man and consider what traits and features give us our identity. Thinking about what makes us unique, we’ll write stories in which we have a new identity. We’ll learn about branching databases and how to create a classification system. Then, we’ll gather data about physical features, make spreadsheets and look for patterns. We’ll take part in physical activities that challenge us and measure the outcomes. While comparing photographs of ourselves with those of our relatives, we’ll decide if we share any features. We’ll create adverts and write a tribute to a friend. After investigating fingerprints and genetic characteristics, we’ll create 3-D models and design clothing that reflects our personality. At the end of the project, we’ll think about factors that influence our personalities and bring in objects that mean a lot to us. We’ll perform shape poetry about our identities and reflect on our strengths.

Our Spring Topic: Frozen Kingdom

Picture 1

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands, which are incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. This half term, we’ll start by making and observing icebergs. We’ll then find out more about them using non-fiction books. We’ll learn technical vocabulary so we can write reports in the role of engineers.

Using globes and maps, we’ll identify the polar regions, comparing the Arctic and Antarctic. We’ll also think about how we can protect the polar environment.

Then, we’ll investigate the tragic story of the RMS Titanic, and find out about the people on board. We’ll download images of polar features and save our information in digital folders.

When we’re more familiar with the polar regions, we’ll write exciting stories, poems and diary entries from the perspective of brave explorers.

Researching our favourite polar animals will be fun, and we’ll create animal artwork inspired by the Inuit people.

We’ll experiment with digital photography and create amazing effects using paints and dyes. At the end of the ILP, we’ll present what we have learned and construct a large-scale model of an igloo!

 

Help your child prepare for their project This half term, we’re going to learn about the coldest places on Earth. Why not watch a documentary such as the BBC Frozen Planet series together?

You could also freeze pieces of fruit with fruit juice in lolly moulds, to create frozen treats with a hidden surprise. Alternatively, work together to create a snowy collage.

WE ARE ELECTRIC!!!

We have been exploring the wonderful of electricity, making circuit and discovering how things work.

HOLA MEXICO!

Our Autumn 2 topic will be exploring the sights and sounds of Mexico.

A huge welcome to the class of 2019!   Myself and Mrs Presant ( AKA The Dream Team!) are looking forward to a fabulous year: exploring the globe from the frozen North to the steamy jungles of Mexico; from the Ancient Mayans to the most up to date techniques in forensic  science and crime fighting.  Fitting in Rhos Y Gwaliau, performances  and those little things called SATs along the way.
