In English this half term, we will be writing Biographies about famous astronauts such as Neil Armstrong. We will be developing our vocabulary through poetry as well as writing explanation texts about the Solar System. We will also be writing newspaper articles about space disasters, after investigating some famous ones. We will also be using our imaginations and and amazing vocabulary to write our own stories about space travel and exploration. 

We will continue to focus strongly on practising our handwriting and improving our spellings this term. 

 

 

 

In Maths this term we will be continuing in our quest to climb the rockstar ladder by improving our times table recall. We will be converting decimals and fractions into percentages and we will be solving problems involving finding percentages of amounts. We wll be exploring 3D shapes and their 2D representations. We will investigate properties of shapes and make nets. We will be finding perimeters of rectangles and compound shapes, including finding missing lengths. We will be estimating, comparing, measuring and drawing angles and identifying unknown angles.

Everyday in class we will become Big Reading Spies and complete our mini missions in order to develop our reading fluency, as well as our ability to appraise and evaluate texts, and being able to read between the lines to deduce and infer information. 

     

We will be having PE every Tuesday and Thursday. We will be developing our skills in invasion games and learning how to work well as a team to build tactics in a competitive game. We will also be developing our gymnastics skills and focusing on balances, bridges, traveling and sequences.

This term we will be learning about Forces. We will understand what it means when forces are balanced and unbalanced. We will be learning about the discovery of Gravity and the role this plays in our everyday life. We will also be identifying how some mechanisms can cause smaller forces to have a greater effect. 

 

 

We had great fun making pancakes on Tuesday. Then we got to show off our very impressive flipping skills.

                                 

 

We had an amazing trip to the Airbus Discovery Space in Stevenage. 

In January, Premier Sports came in and we did lots of sports challenges and recorded our results. In the summer, we will try them again ansd see if we have got fitter and can beat our scores!
