This new term we will be starting our new class text 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo. We will be finding out about young evacuees David and Tucky and learning all about their adventures when they go to live on a farm in the moors.
Our Guided Reading text this term will be 'The Silver Sword' by Ian Serrailler. Again based on the theme of World War 2, this exciting tale tells the story of three Polish children and their search for their father.
In the autumn term, we will be covering:
- Place value
- Fractions (Simplifying, comparing, ordering)
- Fractions (Adding and subtracting)
- Adding mixed numbers
- Subtracting mixed numbers
- Multi-step problems
- Multiplying fractions by integers or fractions
- Dividing fractions by integers
- Finding a fraction of an amount
- Mixed questions to test fluency
Came up with the idea of zero in maths in 3 BC.
Our autumn 1 topic will be light and how we can see, followed by electricity and how it can be manipulated in autumn 2.
We will look at:
- how light travels, or appears to travel
- explaining how objects can be seen
- explaining how reflection helps things be seen
- explaining why shadows are the shape of their objects
- associating the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells in a circuit
- compare and give reasons for how components function, including bulb brightness, buzzer loudness and on/off switches
- use recognised symbols in circuit diagrams
Our historical focus will be World War II.
In this topic we will look at how Nantwich and the local area was impacted by events on a global scale.
As there are notable buildings and historical events associated with WWII in our area, we will pull some of our geography strands into this study (from spring's local study work).
As always, we will look at how life changed over time to help us gain a better understanding of the world we live in today.

Not just Prime Minister...
