Term 6

The Great Kapok Tree


In English this term, we will be using our key text ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, to develop our persuasive and descriptive language in our own writing. Through our text, we will discover how the Amazon Rainforest is at risk, and by putting ourselves in the role of the animals and plants that live there, we will create fictional and non-fictional pieces based around this.


Maths: Shapes and Statistics


In Maths, we will be start of the term with a week focusing on statistics, including different methods of presenting data. Then, we will be spending some time looking into the properties of shape which will include identifying the different types of angles and compare them. We will explore how to position and direction on a coordinate grid. They may need reminding of key words related to this topic such as left, right, forwards and backwards.


Theme: The Americans


Our Theme this term is ‘The Americas’. Firstly, we will be looking at the USA, its states and famous places and monuments within these states. We will look at the lives of the Native Americans and explore what living in the Wild West was like! We will study artefacts and carry out our own research to find out more about America’s interesting history.


Science: All Living Things

Our Science unit will be ‘All Living Things’. This is an exciting unit as we will be going out and about in our local area to identify and classify different animal and plant species! We will investigate how when environments change, they can pose a risk to wildlife and find out how we as humans can limit this - making our own bug-friendly hotel in the process!

All of the children will have their PE lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays. However, sometimes plans change, so we would ask that children have their PE kit in school every day please. For the colder months this can include jogging bottoms.
