What’s happening this half term?
This Autumn half term will be basing all of our work in English around the book Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will be designing our own robots and writing police reports about events that happen in the story.
In Maths we will be comparing the Roman Numeral system with our own and learning how to read and write Roman Numerals. We will also be looking at place value involving 4-digit numbers and solving rounding problems. We will be working hard on our reasoning skills this term too.
For our Geography topic this half term we will be asking the question, “Where on Earth are we?”. In this topic we will be using maps and globes to map our exact location and looking at how the world is mapped. We will be looking at differences in climate and also finding out about time zones.
This half term our Science unit is electricity. We will be investigating where electricity comes from and using resources to make various working electrical circuits. We will also be learning about keeping safe around electricity and the difference between conductors and insulators.
