Writing

  • Discuss writing similar to that which they are going to write to learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar
  • In  non-narrative material use simple presentational devices
  • Compose and rehearse sentences orally(including dialogue), progressively building a rich and varied vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structures

Grammar

Science

Animal Homes

This unit is intended to be taught across the whole year with a minimum of two lessons in each term. 

Pupils look at the "homes" that insects and birds need and make the school friendlier towards these creatures.

They evaluate the success of the measures they have taken.

Pupils also observe plants over time to explore the development of seeds and the life cycle of plants.

Animals and Skeletons

Overview of the unit:

Pupils revisit the classification of animals according to diet as carnivores, herbivores or omnivores, researching

the diets of animals in more detail.  They look at human dietary requirements and begin to identify different food

types and their different uses in the body.  Dissecting an owl pellet provides a link between learning about diets

and the study of skeletons. Pupils learn about external and internal skeletons , making a life size skeleton diagram

and studying the names and functions of the major bones in the human skeleton.

TOPIC - The Romans


Other notices:

PE will be on Thursday and Friday.

Homework will be set on Friday and due in no later than Wednesday.

Reading, spellings and times tables should be practised every day and recorded in reading records.
