THIS WEEK'S COMMENDATION

This Term's Topics:

In Literacy we will be continuing to have regular grammar and comprehension lessons as well as opportunities to write in a variety of styles and for a variety of purposes. Much of the writing we do will be linked to the History topic of World War II and tasks will range from writing from the perspective of an evacuee to more factual based information pieces, as well as looking at Anne Frank in detail and the survivors from the Concentration Camps. We are also studying Shakespeare’s Macbeth in detail as well as exploring some of the drama this fantastic play presents.

In Numeracy we will continue to be focused upon high quality mathematical thinking as well as developing our presentation and accuracy skills. To this end we will cover a wide variety of topics related to real life mathematics including ‘eco-maths’ – ‘the word of work’ – and ‘planning a holiday’ etc. The four rules of number, fractions and algebra etc. will also continue to be prominent as we work towards end of year internal examination success.

As Scientists, we will look at the properties of different materials and begin looking at and investigating which materials change state.

As Geographers we will use our study of World War II as an opportunity to look at maps and how they have changed since 1939. Global Location will also form part of our World Topic.

As Historians we will be beginning our study of World War II. This will include examining how the war began as well as investigating what life was like during the war and studying key events and characters from the war.
