What’s happening this half term?
During the second half term of Summer we are looking at Until I Met Dudley by Roger McGough and You Choose by Nick Sharrat and Pippa Goodhart. We will be using the texts to create explanation texts, persuasive adverts and list poetry.
In Maths we will be focusing on geometry (angles and properties of shapes) and measurements (converting units and volume). Our KIRF is to be able to find factor pairs of any number within our times tables.
We will be studying the question How has leisure and entertainment changed during the 20th Centruy? During these lessons, pupils will complete a range of learning tasks finding out about the key inventions and people who were crucial to our access to entertainment. We will be using a variety of historical sources to help us..
We will be studying the question ‘How different will you be when you are as old as your grandparents?’. During this unit, pupils will be investigating the different things you can do at different ages, the similarities and differences between individuals, finding evidence to support their learning.
The children had so much fun playing in the snow.
As part of our curriculum, year 5 and 2 visited a local Sikh Temple in Manchester. At the Temple we met with Bobby Singh who gave us a tour of the Gurdwara and told us lots of facts about the Sikh religion. We then had vegetarian rice in the Langar.
