English

This week in English, the children will be reading a variety of different poems linked to our Space Explorers unit. They will express preferences and give reasons for these. Next, the children will be comparing three different poems looking at the language and structure used. We will also discuss humour and who’s point of view the poem is from. Then the children will be trying to learn poems by heart, focusing on different memory techniques that can help them to do this. Near the end of the week, the children will use the poem ‘Six ways to look at the moon’ by Pie Corbett. After looking at the metaphors and language used, they will write their own poem choosing a planet instead of the moon. Finally, they will practise learning their poem in collaborative groups and perform it to the class focusing on expression, volume, actions etc.

Maths

Next week in Maths, we will be focusing on number, the number system and the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be building on our knowledge of equivalent fractions to deal with multiplying mixed numbers, and will work at how to use the Lowest Common Multiple to make the denominator of two fractions the same. At Mastering level, this will include an introduction to fraction multiplication and division. We will be stretching our knowledge of place value to convert between different post-decimal units and revisiting our conversion between different units of measure.

Topic

In topic this week, we have some collaborative activities for the children to complete. We will start the week by looking at photographs from the Earth and space and ask the question: How do you think people imagined the world before they had travelled into space? The children will be exploring old maps of the world and looking at how ancient civilisations viewed the world. As a task, the children will be creating a mind map to prove that the world is not flat. They will become familiar with the classical understanding of the world as 'Geocentric'. They will understand the Copernican view of the world as being 'Heliocentric'. The children will then research the astrologer Galileo Galilei, who was accused of heresy for proving that the world is not the centre of the universe. Working collaboratively, the children will create a defence for Galileo's views.
