This half term, we will be learning...



This half term we will be studying the story ‘Beowulf’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be identifying and exploring legend vocabulary, heroes and fiends to use to write and present our very own stories based on a legend.



This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons:


  • Place value of numbers up to 1,000,000
  • Negative numbers
  • Roman numerals
  • Column addition
  • Column subtraction
  • Using the inverse operation



We will be learning all about the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We will understand that continents are huge landmasses, which are separated by the waters of the oceans. We will also explore the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. 



Our topic for this half term is 'Material Properties'. We will be investigating different materials, their properties and how their states can or perhaps cannot be changed.



We will be exploring the work of Liu Bolin and his use of camouflage. We will work to develop the skills to be able to innovate our own camouflage artwork.
