What will we learn this term?

Summer Term


This term, in our topic lessons, will be learning about the Maya and comparing them to the Anglo-Saxons here in England. After half-term, we are learning about what was life like in deserts? We will be looking at the plants and animals that live in this biome and how humans interact with it.


In Science, we will be learning about reproduction, reversible and irreversible changes and plastic pollution. In D&T, we will be making pop-up books and creating portraits using paints and mixed media.


Our writing opportunities will be based around Louis Sachar's fabulous book 'Holes'. In Maths, we will begin by focusing on shape, geometry and decimal numbers. After half-term, we will be learning about negative numbers and measurement including converting units of measure.


In Music, we will be continuing our guitar lessons (first two week back) before learning about composition and performing music. In Computing, we will be coding using Scratch before creating stop-go animations. Finally, in PE, this term's units are athletics and fielding games i.e. cricket and rounders.
