In Literacy we will be looking at the author Eoin Colfer and studying his book ‘The legend of Spud Murphy’ as a class reader. We will be looking at different types of Nouns, including Pronouns, in grammar. Our poet this term will be Alan Ahlberg. In creative writing, we will be focusing on Narrative story writing, which will involve the use of adjectives, similes and metaphors covered in our grammar lessons.

In Numeracy we will be focusing upon multiplication tables, factors and multiples. We will be continuing and developing the four basic rules of maths in both mechanical and problematic form, and in our topic work we will be investigating 2 and 3D shapes and symmetry in further detail.

As Scientists, we will be looking at plants. We will study the parts of flowering plants and their functions, the conditions affecting plant growth and plants as living things. We will also investigate how water is transported in plants and describe plant life cycles, in particular how seeds are formed, dispersed and germinate. We will be growing our own plants and studying them over a period of time.

As Geographers we will be studying places around the world including continents, Europe and places around the UK. As Historians we will be studying the Tudor period from 1485 to 1603. We will be looking at the various monarchs, starting with Henry VII through to Elizabeth I., and discovering what Tudor life was like from war and entertainment to crime and punishment. This term we will be focusing on how the Tudor dynasty was founded starting with the Battle of Bosworth.

As Creative Technicians we will be learning about the art style ‘Pointillism’ and Georges Seurat. We will be using a variety of mediums to re-create his most famous pieces and using this technique to create our own pieces of work.

As Musicians, we will be studying ‘Carnival of the Animals’ by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens. We will be listening to, and appraising, his music whilst composing and performing music related to animals. We will also be making music on ‘Music Box’ software.
