This week in Literacy we will be learning a whole range of new skills as we begin to learn how to make a documentary. This is part of our work to intergrate the use of the iPads into our lessons to further enhanse the children’s understanding of Digital Literacy. As we look forward to our trip to the Shanghai Jewish Museum, we will begin the process of reading and writing information texts that we can use in our documentary in conjunction with information we discover at the museum.
In Maths, we will be beginning a unit of work on fractions. This will include calculating fractions of amounts, converting decimals and percentages into fractions, adding and subtracting fractions and using fractions in real life problems. We will also look at mental strategies to speed our claculations when considering fractions of amounts.
In Themed Learning we will begin to look at the challenging topic of the treatment of Jewish people druing the Second World War. This will be done in a sensitive way using the wonderful book ‘Rose Blanche’ which tells the story from the point of view of a young German girl. This will pave the way for our trip to the Shanghai Jewish Museum.
Our focus this week in PHSCE will be the effects of civil war on population movements and the politics and contrasting opinions that this generates.
Literacy – however, therefore, in addition, furthermore, nevertheless, despite
Maths – data, graph, mean, median, mode, range, pattern, trend, analyse
Humanities – rationing, shortage, U-Boat, coupons
