In English we are starting off the half term by focusing on the book ’The Hobbit’ by J. R. R. Tolkien. We will be reading the graphic novel version in class and looking at the language used, characters introduced and how fantasy is used within the story. We will also be describing our own journey through Middle Earth! We will then continue with our theme of fantasy but instead look at short stories, before ending the year on debate poetry.
This half term in Maths we are starting off by looking at factors, multiples and scaling. We will then be moving onto some new learning of long multiplication and writing our division remainders as fractions. We will then cover converting between imperial and metric unit of measurement before finishing the year with calculating area and perimeter.
In Science our new topic is humans and animals. We will be looking at the changes humans experience in their youth and in older age. We will also be comparing the gestation periods of different animals and their life cycles.
Our new topic of Leisure and Entertainment is history based. We will be focusing on how the Entertainment industry has changed in recent times. We will be looking at the development of Hollywood and cinema, the football industry and how the advancement of technology has contributed to all of this.
In Art this half term we will mainly be focusing on our production of ’Olivia’. We will be designing programme covers to be used on the night, along with props and set design! We can’t wait for you to see it all!
