LITERACY

In Literacy, we will be beginning an exciting unit of work on narrative. This will involve moving through various elements of story construction to help build an immersive tale. We will begin by looking at the character dynamics within a tale; how the protagonist interacts with other key figures around him or her. We will then look at how to build depth to these characters, building back stories and a spider-web of likes and dislikes. We will then look at how to create an immersive world in which they can inhabit and how a fantastic location can become like an extra character.

MATHS

In Maths, we will be moving on to look at measure. 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 resources from our cooking room. Finally, we will move onto 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 measure amount of ingredients and apply what we have learnt when cooking.

THEMED LEARNING

In Themed Learning, we will be looking at the role of women during World War 2 and how the politics of gender relations changed in Europe. The children will discover how the horrors of war were juxtaposed with increasing independence and involvement in the economy for women, with many taking up roles undreamt of before the war.

PSHCE

In PSHCE we will be looking at sexism and gender stereotypes and how lucky we are to live in a world where women are achieving a degree of equality with men. We will also be looking at countries where this is not yet the case and considering why this is.

VOCABULARY

Literacy – protagonist, plot, enabler, plot-device, setting, guardian

Maths – litre, milliliter, ton, gram, kilogram, conversion

Humanities – sexism, feminist, suffragettes, land girls

DUTCH

Dames en Heren, Hooggeëerd publiek...!

Na de fantastische circusshow van donderdag zullen de kinderen van KS2 zich nu buigen over het schrijven van een circushandleiding. Hoe organiseer je een show, wat heb je nodig, hoe start je en hoe eindig je. Aan het einde van het project ligt er een prachtige handleiding klaar voor iedereen die interesse heeft in het organiseren van net zo’n prachtige show.

Denkt u op maandag (Y3 , Y5, Y6) of donderdag (Y4)  aan het biebboek en de Estafettemap? Voor Year 4 hebben we de dag veranderd. Dit kwam beter uit in de planning.
