This term, up until Christmas, we will be looking at the following topics. If you wish to research any of these beforehand, please feel free to do some independent research.
Diary entry based on our class reading book, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’
Descriptive writing which will be linked to Kensuke’s island
Poetry – free verse
Explanation text (linked to ICT) explaining why e-safety is important and how to keep safe.
As well as reading Kensuke’s Kingdom as our class text every day and using this to improve our vocabulary and comprehension skills, during Guided Reading sessions, we will be ensuring we know how to find root words and word classes, expanding our vocabulary further, using a range of skills to help answer SATs-style questions, using evidence from the text to back up our answers and summarising texts using the main points.
Number – there will be a big focus on place value, the 4 number operations, fractions, decimals and percentages in order to ensure all these skills are in place. We will also be using these skills, along with reasoning skills, to solve problems and investigations.
Geography – we will be looking at locational information: naming and locating counties, geographical regions and understanding how some aspects change over time.
History – the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons’ struggle for the United Kingdom
Science – Electricity and Light
Computing – e-Safety
PSHE – health and well-being
Art – Surrealism
