Whole Class Reading
Our Author for the Spring Term is Andy William who wrote the children's version of 'Macbeth'. The children will study this book in class and answer a range of questions about it in pairs as well as independently.
In maths the children will be learning all about shape, position and direction, decimals, negative numbers and conversion. In shape we will look at the features of 2D and 3D shapes and focus on symmetry and also angels. We will then move on to studying co-ordinates and translating and reflecting different shapes. In decimals we will begin to add, subtract and multiply decimals and use these skills towards many reasoning problems. We will gain a good understanding of negative numbers and finally finish with conversion of lengths, weight and capacity.
In science we will be looking at Forces and their effect on movement. We will investigate the forces of: friction, water resistance, air resistance, gravity (and its affects on Earth) and how different forces can work against each other. We will then finish the year working with Accrington Stanley on our 'Move and Learn' programme focusing on exercise, well being and healthy eating.
