This term’s English learning will be based on the poem The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. This book retells the ill-fated love story between the Highwayman and Bess. Our focus during the first half term will be to consolidate our GPS and writing skills by creating descriptions, diary entries and narratives. In addition, Mrs Patrick will be teaching reading with a specific SATs focus using a variety of texts.
Later in the term, we will be using shorter texts and videos including;
From these we will create a range of writing including newspaper, eyewitness reports, letters and persuasive texts. Cross-curricular writing will also occur through our History and Science topics.
In maths, we will be learning about ratio, geometry and algebra. In lessons, we will learn to consolidate our understanding and become fluent in the skills. Then we will apply our knowledge to different situations and reason mathematically, explaining our understanding to others. In preparation for SATs, arithmetic will be focused on during this term both within class and intervention groups.
Mrs Patrick will be leading Science on a Tuesday afternoon. She will be focusing on the Heart and exercise.
