English

During the Spring term, we will be reading 'Shackleton's Journey' written by William Grill. Shackleton's Journey is a unique visual re-telling Ernest Shackleton's landmark expedition crossing the Antarctic from one pole to the other. William Grill's impeccably researched and informative illustrations celebrate the 100th anniversary since the historic exploration by Shackleton and his crew on Endurance. Children will love exploring Grill's exploded diagrams and the fascinating details of this landmark voyage. We will be focussing on relative pronouns, relative clauses and dialogue to write a recount as part of Shackleton's journey. 

 

            

Maths

During Spring term, we will be applying our calculating knowledge to investigate, calculate and explore fractions. Continuing your learning of times tables is imperative when learning about fractions. We will also be converting fractions, decimals and percentages. Investigating, 2D and 3D shapes and area and perimeter.

As always, we will be focusing on the children securing key fluency skills before challenging themselves with problem solving and reasoning challenges.

Science

In Science we will be learning about Classification. We will be describing how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including microorganisms, plants and animals. We will be able to give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.
