Daily Read Write Inc. sessions will continue. As well as this, back in class, we will develop our reading and writing skills through an information text about castles and a story about plants.
Topic, DT and Art
In our history topic about ‘Castles’ we will look at Medieval castles - Learn about the features of motte and bailey castles. We will learn about the main parts of a castle, who might live there and find out how castles were defended. We will make defense mechanisms in DT and design our own coat of arms and make a 3D model of a castle in art.
Science and Computing
In this unit children have the opportunity to grow plants and take measurements. We will set up a comparative experiment to observe what plants need to grow well, and watch the germination process first hand. We will make videos about what we find out!
Our RE unit this half term is Pentecost and Mission. This unit invites pupils to deepen their knowledge of the Pentecost story and consider the symbolism of the story. The nature of the promise made by Jesus is a key focus and an understanding of Pentecost as the birthday of the Church is developed. Links are also made between Confirmation and Pentecost. At the end of this half term we will also have a Multi Faith Week where we will focus on the stories of Hinduism.
We will be developing our running, jumping and throwing skills in athletics.
