Term 6 Learning Update

This term we will be continuing our journey through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will look at what made these periods in history special and consolidate our learning with a visit to Leeds Castle! We will discuss the importance of the use of bronze and iron and explore different theories about the building of Stonehenge.

 

In English we will be continuing to develop and hone our narrative writing skills. We will continue to challenge ourselves to use adventurous vocabulary and develop our use of more complex sentences. We will also be creative our own non-chronological reports on the Woolly Mammoth!

 

In Maths this term, we will be continuing to build upon a range of mathematical skills, including, solving integer scaling problems, addition and subtraction with money and multiplication, division and fractions. We will also be spending a week using coordinates to draw polygons and finding the coordinates of shapes after translation. We will continue to apply our skills to solving problems and developing our mathematical language through reasoning.

 

In science we will be starting a new topic about rocks and fossils. We will focus on the properties of these rocks and what makes them unique.

 

SRE: this term we will complete our three SRE lessons. 

In P.E this term we will continue our swimming lessons on Monday mornings and in the afternoons we will receive sports coaching.

Dragons' Den

 

What a fantastic end to the term! Class 4 have spent the last week designing and creating stone age tools for our very own Kemsing Dragons’ Den! All this hard work paid off today with some brilliantly persuasive pitches to the dragons, (Miss Perrin, Mr Adam, Miss Church and Mr Kilbride). Ultimately, the ‘Super-Hot Slayer’ was victorious! I am incredibly proud of their achievements, well done Class 4!
