Welcome back to school, and an even bigger welcome to class 5! Mrs Foote and I hope you have all had a great holiday, refreshed, ready and raring to go!
In the first half of the Autumn term our topic is called Invader and Settlers. In this topic we will begin by exploring The Vikings and then studying the time period through to 1066.
In Numeracy we will be securing number facts and using all four operations in calculations. We will also be doing some work around fractions, decimals and percentages, identifying how they link to one another and then using them in real-life contexts. It is important for children to continue to practise all of the times tables and develop a quick recall and response. We will have weekly tests.
In Literacy, our learning will mainly be based on the amazing work of a significant children’s author - Roald Dahl. Throughout this topic we will be referring to his books and some of the film adaptations. In the second half of the term we will also look at the work of Louis Sacher.
Our first Science topic for this half term is plants. Pupils will demonstrate an increasing knowledge and understanding of life processes of a flowering plant. They will describe the main functions of organs of the flowering plant. They will explain how these functions are essential to the organism.
