This term in English, Year Five and Six will be writing a balanced argument discussing whether or not we should still use fossil fuels as our main energy source. We are taking our inspiration from ‘The Tantrum That Saved The World’; a fascinating book looking at the effects of climate change and global warming. Our class story book this term is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell; which complements our Geography study which is focused on the human and physical geography of the Amazon rainforest.
In Maths, Year Five have started this half term finishing their topic on Fractions before moving on to decimals and percentages. Year Six have started this half term converting units of measure including metric and imperial; they will be moving on to perimeter, area and volume.
In Science this term the children will build on their prior knowledge of Animals including Humans; learning how humans first develop as a foetus and develop through each stage of life.
In RE this half term we are considering the question ‘How can following God bring freedom and justice?’ The children will make connections between Bible texts and what Christian’s believe it means to be ‘People of God’.
For Year Five and Six, PSHE this half term is ‘All about attitude’. We will be discussing how our attitudes can have a direct correlation on our successes in life.
