Adventures in Space
This half term we are going to be learning all about Space.
In science we are going to be focusing on the relative sizes and distances of the planets within our solar system. We will be investigating why we have day and night as well as thinking about how our orbit affects the seasons. In addition, we will also be finding out about the force of gravity and other forces within our environment.
Within our English and Guided Reading we will be focusing on the novel Cosmic. We will use this novel to look at how humorous writing can be developed and attempt to write some funny stories of our own.
In Maths we will be focusing on algebra, converting between units of measure as well as area, perimeter and volume
In geography, we will be looking at line of latitude and discussing how climates differ depending on their position on the globe.
Don't forget to stay active! We are still running 3 times a fortnight- Week A- Monday/Thursday and Week B- Thursday- and we will be sending home the children's personal bests on their homework.
Homework is sent out on a Tuesday/due in on a Monday. This consists of a rotation of literacy, spelling and maths activities but it is really important that the children have time to read a little bit every night.
PE is now on a Monday and will be Space themed Street Dance sessions with Becki.
