To support this we will be learning about ‘Story Mountains’ and looking at the punctuation of direct speech. This will build to the children writing their own stories to enter a Global Campus writing competition.

In Maths, we will be moving on to look at meaure. This will first involve the conversion of units in base 10, from litres to millilitres and so on. We will then look at converting from metric to imperial units, using resouces from our cooking room. Finally, we will move on to seeing how to apply this knowledge in a selection of word problems and real life scenarios. Throughout the week, we will also be taking it in turns to use the cookery room to meaure ingredients and apply what we have learnt to some cooking.

KEY VOCABULARY

Mass, speed, volume, time, units

THEMED LEARNING

We will be continuing our World War 2 topic and building on the foundations of knowledge we have laid in the first weeks back. The children will be investigating the Blitz and discovering what life was like for children under the rain of bombs falling upon London during 1940. They will also be using a range of challenging techniques in Art to construct a multi-layered piece of printed work that depicts the destruction of war. This will be coupled with an investigative scheme of work using laptops and iPads to study how shelters were built to keep the population safe from falling bombs.
