Spring Term Update!
I'm sure everyone is looking forward to two weeks off as much as I am! We have had a fun, learning-filled term and the next one will be no exception!
We have started some Jackie Morris-inspired poetry in English and will be finishing that off after the break before moving onto some biography writing inspired by 'Women in Science' by Rachel Ignotofsky. It will make for some excellent writing in the first half term! After we have finished our fractions topic, we will be moving onto our second multiplication and division topic which focuses on multiplying numbers with more than one digit together, shot division and dividing with remainders.
In history, we are looking at the Benin Kingdom, a very exciting topic about an often overlooked African empire. We will look at when and how it formed, life in the Kingdom, the slave trade and the kingdom's fall. Our science will focus on megnetism looking at the magnetic field, magnetic materials and how a compass works. Finally, in RE, we will focus on incarnation and why Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah.
I look forward to seeing you all after Christmas and hope you have a happy and well-rested break!
