For the first few weeks of the Autumn term, our topic will be based on The Mayflower and the 400th anniversary of this important event.
Our topic for the rest of the term will be:
Inside Out (Feelings and Emotions)
Key concepts being taught this term:
Children will write a biography about a famous explorer, refugee or human rights activist based on our Mayflower 400 project. We will also write a diary entry based on our book ‘refugee’ and write a persuasive article which we will send to our local MP or the Evening Herald. Finally, children will write poems based on the Mayflower journey and people’s emotions.
Place Value – children will read, write, order and compare numbers to 10,000,000 including rounding.
The Four Operations – solve multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operation and method to use.
Fractions – Use common factors to simplify fractions in order to compare and order. Add and subtract fractions with different denominators.
Children will use our outdoor area to classify living things.
Children will continue to learn how to stay safe through our E-Safety scheme and to use coding to write computer programs.
Children will recreate pictures of Plymouth in the style of Brian Pollard. They will also use ‘Cookie Cartoon’ workshops to draw and create their own cartoon scenery pictures.
