Spring Term 2 – Blood Heart

 

English

In English, we will be writing non-chronological reports on the heart. We will be designing our own healthy products and writing adverts based on them using the key features of persuasive writing. Also, we will bring human emotions to life – using heart-related terminology - and write our own personification poems.

 

Maths

This half term we will look at rounding whole numbers and decimals to varied degrees of accuracy. Also, we will be working out the area and perimeter of various shapes before moving on to calculating the volume of cubes and cuboids. In addition to this, we will be working on the 12 and 24 hour clock and solving varied time problems based on this. Finally, we will be learning about angles; working out angles in shapes and drawing various angles using a protractor. 

 

Topic

In our Science lessons, we will research and learn about the functions of the main organs of the human body. We will closely focus on the heart and circulatory system as well as exploring how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

In our Art lessons, we will produce artwork based on people in action and create clay models of the structure of the heart.

In Computing, we will be looking at E-Safety and how to stay safe online before producing our own E-Safety posters.

 

P.E / Games

During this half term, we will be completing circuits to track our pulse and heart rate before and after exercise and see how exercise affects our bodies.
