Below is an outline of the work to be covered over the next half term for our topic Where in the World is Glasshouses?
This half-term we will be reading and writing to inform. With a heavy focus on non-fiction, the children will be writing purposeful texts for the local area including a magazine article about local wildlife and their own script for a CBBC Newsround story.
This half-term is predominantly learning about a wide range of prefixes and suffixes. We will also be working hard to spell Common Exception Words from the Y5/6 list in fun and interactive ways.
We will begin this half-term in Maths with an in-depth study on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will develop their confidence in using formal methods for each of the operations and children will be able to apply this knowledge in a variety of contexts in order to solve problems.
In Science, we will be learning about animals, including humans.
We will be learning about the history of the local area.
In ICT, we will be looking at using child-friendly search engines to research about the local area.
In PSHE, our topic is how to look after our mental health.
Art and DT
In Art this half-term, we will be using the work of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore to inspire some Yorkshire sculpture.
In P.E. we will be practicing the game of football, with particular focus on dribbling skills and teamwork.
