LITERACY

In Literacy this week we will be finishing our exciting topic on mystery stories. We will be continuing to delve deep into this fascinating genre, encountering many red-herrings, twists, double-crosses and roguish behaviour from devious villains. There will be investigations galore and Sherlock Holmes himself may make an appearance. We will finish by completing our own, devious mystery stories!

MATHS

We will be raising the bar even higher in Maths this week as we begin learning about algebra. The children will begin to experiment with replacing letters with numbers and come to understand how and why this is useful. We will look at solving algebraic equations and how to plot algebraic graphs.

THEMED LEARNING

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. 

PSHCE

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.
