Next week in English, children will be learning to identify how an author describes feelings. We will focus on the idea of ‘show not tell’ where children write with inference to describe feelings and emotion to their writer. Children will learn to identify this skill within different styles of writing. They will also have a go at writing a story themselves in order to demonstrate this skill. Children will begin this writing by reinforcing their work from last week on paragraphs and then building upon this work to develop a story.


In Maths next week children will be revisiting the following objectives:

  • Consolidate understanding of converting between units of time
  • Consolidate fluency in using money expressed in pounds and pence
  • Convert between miles and kilometers and use a conversion graph

Children will approach these objectives in different ways across the year group and by tackling differentiated problems and scenarios. Children will learn different methods to solve problems and interpret questions. We will consolidate the week's learning at the end of the week by covering word problems which meet all three objectives. Where possible, these objectives will be related to our topic of Fairgrounds.


The children have been getting to grips with the science behind fairground rides. Children have learnt about the different forces which come into effect in order to keep people safe on rides. Next week, children will continue to learn about velocity, gravity and the opposing forces of centrifugal and centripetal force. Following on from this, children will begin to learn about how circuits work and how they could incorporate a circuit, to control a switch or a light, into their ride. We will also be making pin-hole cameras next week!
