This year, we will be following the Power Maths scheme which is a mastery resource that empowers every child to understand and succeed. It develops growth mindsets and encourages hard work, practice and a willingness to see mistakes as learning tools. This term we will be focusing on multiplication and division. Besides this, we are continuing to use TTRockstars as a platform for helping children to learn and consolidate their knowledge of times tables and related division facts.
This half term our topic in Science is Materials and their Properties. We have started to explore separating materials and keeping water warm by designing and making a thermal cup. We are learning to take careful measurements and record our results accurately to be able to draw conclusions from our results.
For the rest of the year we will be looking at:
Autumn 2 - Properties and changes of materials
Spring 1 - Earth and Space
Spring 2 - Earth and Space
Summer 1 - Living things and their habitats
Summer 2 - Animals including humans
This term we will be looking at the Roman Empire and how its influences can still be felt in this country today – specifically in our local area. We will be covering key skills used by historians to uncover and understand the past. We will look at areas of Roman art and architecture and how we can still see influences of these in society today. Later in the term we will be applying the skills we have learnt to the British Empire and continuing to explore the Roman’s in independent stage 3 projects.
