Our topic for this term is 'Natural Disasters'. We will first take a look at the continents of the world and our country. We will make comparisons to other areas of the world and find out about londitude and latitiude. When we have a basic understanding of our planet, we will focus on weather and climate and then look at natural disasters in great detail. This also links to our Science work this half term which is 'Electricity.' We will look at how electricity is made and transported to our homes.
In mathematics, we are using Effective Maths. This is a new resource and we will be sharing more information on this in the future. Home learning tasks are set regularly on Mathletics to support class learning. Home learning tasks are set regularly on Mathletics to support class learning and printed homework is also sent home with the children on a regular basis.
The children will focus on the text 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' at the start of this term and will use this text to inform and inspire their writing. We will be writing setting descriptions and our own stories set in imaginary worlds. We will also be writing scripts based on news stories and weather forecasts.
