Stone Age to Iron Age

Topic

This half term, our topic is Stone Age to Iron Age. We will continue to revisit our history knowledge learnt last half term. In science we will be learning about forces and magnets. We will also be exploring light. In DT this half term we will be focusing on construction and creating roundhouses. Finally, in Computing, we will be focusing on search technologies, this will be implemented through other subject areas.

 

Literacy - Writing      

First, we will be learning to write character and setting descriptions using adjectives, similes, adverbs and other ambitious vocabulary. To do this we will focus on the story of the Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will then move on to write a newspaper report.  Before the half term is complete we will also be focusing on poems with similes.

 

Literacy - Reading

 

For this half term we will be focusing on our reading skill of inference we will do this by first looking at inference with pictures. We will then move on to inferring from text, using the Iron Man as our whole class book. We will also develop our knowledge and breadth of vocabulary during these sessions to help us improve our writing. 

 

Maths

 

During this half term we will be focusing on  addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. We will use concrete materials to support our learning before moving onto more abstract questions.
