Term 5 - A little magic can take you a long way
George's Marvellous Medicine
For our topic this term we are focusing on imagination and the ways in which authors generate imagery in creative writing. Our class novel is George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. We will look to become more confident readers and authors through a selection of writing tasks including poetry, character description and story writing.
This term we continuing our focus on measures, in particular the use of mass, capacity and time. Later in the term we will then focus on all things geometry. By using geometry we will become increasingly confident in comparing, classifying and describing 2D and 3D shapes, identifying right angles and describing different types of lines.
Our Science focus will incorporate our second biology unit, featuring plants. We will turn our attention to the roots and shoots of flowering plants and discover what elements plants need to grow healthy and strong.
Ms Vousden will be teaching RE this term where we will explore the concept of prayer and ask ourselves how and why this practice is undertaken in many different faiths.
