In Literacy this week we will be continuing a fantastic unit of work on Shakespeare’s MacBeth. We will continue to work through the play ‘MacBeth’ and meet the remarkable Lady MacBeth. We shall use Shakespeare’s powerful language to get to know this memorable character and practise performing in character. We will build to writing Lady MacBeth’s diary as she reflects on what has been happening at her castle. 


In Maths this week we will be learning about fractions. We will begin by revisiting our learning from earlier in the term, checking our understanding of ordering and simplifying fractions. We will then move onto multiplying and dividing fractions, and then finish by looking at their relationship with decimals and percentages.


This term our Themed Learning topic is water. This will be a unit that will involve a great deal of practical scientific investigation and the study of some challenging geographical case studies. As we continue with our project we will begin looking at batik in art, creating beautiful and intricate patterns using hot wax and dyes. The children will move through a design process, learning from the work of professional artists. 


In PSHCE this week we will continue to focus on fostering new relationships as we have had a number of new students join our year group, creating rules and expectations for the classes and how to work together successfully.  We will reflect on what we achieved last term and discuss new personal targets for the term ahead.


Literacy – hurly-burly, heath, thane, fair and foul, rapt

Maths– numerator, denominator, simplify, order, multiply, divide, percentage
