In Autumn Term 2 we will be studying 'Frozen Kingdom'. 

Literacy

In Literacy we will be learning about the Titanic and writing a chronological report about the disaster. Also, we will imagine that we are Scott of the Antarctic (Robert Falcon Scott) and write diary entries about our expedition in 1911-1912 to the South Pole.

We will be looking at Haiku and personification poetry and writing our own based on polar animals and the Northern Lights.

 

Maths

This half term we will be looking at the area and perimeter of rectangles, squares, irregular shapes, triangles and parallelograms. We will be converting between fractions, decimals and percentages, including simplifying fractions.

Also, we will be recognising ratio and proportion in context. We will be working on our reasoning and problem solving skills; solving word problems based on the four rules of number.

 

In our Geography and History lessons, we will research and learn about Arctic and Antarctic explorers, including Robert Falcon Scott and plot the latitudes and longitudes of Polar Regions on a world map.

During our Science lessons, we will look at habitats, including why certain animals live in the habitats that they do.

In our Art lessons, we will produce detailed sketches of polar wildlife as well as our own Inuit art drawings.

In computing, we will create informative PowerPoints, using custom animations, on icy features of the Polar Regions.

 

P.E / Games

During this half term we will be completing circuit training exercises.
