What we are learning this term
In the Spring term, we will be learning all about ‘World Biomes’ as part of our ‘We are Geographers’ topic. We will be exploring whether there is still such thing as a ‘biome’ due to the impact humans are having on our world today. We have been inspired by Planet Earth to make our own documentaries about the state of different biomes across the world.
In English, we will be reading ‘The Varmints’ by Helen Ward to help us with our descriptive writing. We will be creating voice overs to the film version of the book. We will also develop our debating skills and learn how to campaign for something we believe is right.
After half term, we will be reading ‘Shackleton’s Journey’ by William Grill to help us with our non-fiction writing.
In Maths, we will be consolidating our knowledge of fractions – learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. We will explore the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages. We will then move on to algebra and solve equations involving formulae and mixed operations. We will end the term with converting between measurements and solving mixed problems.
