Our topic for the second half of Autumn is called 'Wingardium Leviosa'. We will be designing our own coat of arms and then sewing them onto a tote bag, which we can sell at the Christmas fayre. We will also be improving our drawing skills in art and looking at a range of past musicians.
In literacy, we will be writing a twisted tale based on Cinderella linked to our author of the term, Hilary Robinson. We will also be looking at describing different settings from around Hogwarts and writing our own Harry Potter stories.
In maths, we will be focussing on addition, subtraction and multiplication. This includes using mental and formal written methods.
We are starting the year off with an exciting topic called 'Barnsley Builders'. We will be studying the human and physical features of Barnsley and designing our own buildings to add to the area. It will also include looking at the history of Barnsley and presenting and sorting information using Microsoft Office.
In literacy, we will be writing our own travel brochures about Barnsley and then writing a persuasive speech to explain how our designs would have a positive impact on the local community.
In maths, we will be focussing on place value. This includes counting, partitioning, rounding, negative numbers and Roman numerals.
