Welcome back to new term in the Owl Class.
We are so happy to be returning and looking forward to all this term has to offer.
Our first English focus is based on a text called Alien Landing. This is a mystery text and as before, the children will get to know the story well before they have their own turn at writing a mystery story. Our focus for writing is action, and speech. This text then continues into teaching non-fiction persuasive writing. In maths, we continue this half term with mulitplication and division, before moving on to fractions towards to the half term. After this the children will focus on geometry which will take us to the summer. Times tables is a continued focus throughout the year.
As sciencentists we are just beginning our new topic Plants and setting up an investigation into how important each growing requirement is in the nurture of bean plants. It is an investigation that will last for the next 6 week, and if they survive, you may be lucky and have a bean plant to continue to grow at home. As Historians a geographers we will be exploring The Vikings, learning about Viking Gods and using a variety of sources to understand what life was like as a Viking.
Our last topic of the school year will be about the Olympics. We will learn about the origins of the olympics and Ancient Greece, as well as Japan which is where they are held this year.
