Autumn term 2023:
In English, we have used the text “Rose Blanche” by Ian McEwan and Roberto Innocenti . We wrote a paragraph based on an image to create tension,, shared effective sentences for a narrative and produced a journey map to create the continuation of a narrative.
In maths, we are working on our unit on fractions and will hopefully have moved on to decimals before Christmas, after which, we will study measurement
In science, we are learning about light. We have tested hypothesis when we made periscopes and we have studied the human eye very briefly and we will complete the unit by looking in more depth at the human eye and working on refuting evidence presented by scientists.
Our topic this term is “World at War”. We have studied the Second World War this half term, including the holocaust, causes of WW2, leaders, battles and the home front, adding in the forgotten heroes of the war (women, animals and black regiments).
In Computing this half term, we have studied Kodu. We have had great fun making worlds and changing them on a whim using a wide range of coding skills and imagination!
Our overarching theme this half term is Respect and love. We have had some very good class discussions on what it means to be respectful and show love to ourselves and others. Children have had the opportunity to present our Tuesday worship sessions.
Black history month has been our topic in this subject.
We have also been looking at maintaining a healthy lifestyle in mind and body and discussing the importance of talking to help us maintain good mental health.
We have tied this in with our school values of respect and love.
Visits, trips and experiences
We have a great trip to the Jewish Museum in Manchester planned for the 28th of November and we had a fantastic time at Crucial Crew, learning all about keeping safe in society.
