Autumn Term

Autumn Term 2017

This term we have lots of interesting work in store:

In Maths, we will be consolidating formal methods of calculation as well as working with fractions and 2D and 3D shapes.

In English, we will be exploring classic fiction and looking specifically at the 'Just William' books by Richmal Crompton.

In Science, we are learning about classification and the work of Carl Linnaeus to help us to understand why we sort all living things into different groups.

Our computing work will focus on coding and debugging simple games and apps.

In RE we will be exploring Islam by looking at questions such as - What is life like for a Muslim in Britain?

In Art, connected to our Islam topic, we will be working on Islamic calligraphy and also traditional henna patterns.

In D&T, we will be focusing on Arabic food and we will be getting a visit from the Fun Food Chef, so watch out for the photos!

Our History work will focus on the early Islamic civilization of Baghdad in AD 900 and we will find out how discoveries made then are still relevant today.

Our Geography work will be based on using maps and working out 4 and 6 figure grid references, whilst also drawing sketch plans of the local area.

It certainly will be a busy term.
