Our current topic is called "Blood Heart ''.
Crimson, scarlet, Burgundy, cherry...blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let's explore our circulation system! Now surgeons, prepare yourself as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies.
English - Non-fiction
This term will see us continuing to explore non-fiction genres, including explanation texts relating to the circulatory system. We will also be developing our reading comprehension skills even further.
We are currently exploring the features of explanation texts in preparation for writing a piece on 'How the heart works'. We are using Wallace and Gromit's amazing 'Cracking Contraptions' to help us explore the features of this genre.
Maths - Number
Measures, area, perimeter, volume and ratio will be explored this term. We will also be developing our reasoning, problem solving and arithmetic fluency skills.
We are mastering our understanding of the link between metric units of measure and will also be mastering finding the area of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms.
Our PE days this half-term are Wednesday and Thursday. We will be focusing on developing our Netball and Paceball skills each week.
Please ensure that your child has a full kit in school on these days and that all earrings are removed and long hair is tied back. Many thanks.
