Autumn Term

November 2021 - Autumn Term 2

Our topic for this half term is Energy.

 

In line with our new topic, we will soon be beginning work exploring a non-chronological report detailing the impact of climate change on our planet. We will be using various sources to inform our research, including a David Attenborough documentary. The children will be choosing the topic for their own non-chronological report and I'm sure there will be a wonderful range of choices! 

 

The children have really engaged with our new topic so far and I am looking forward to delving deeper into this topical issue facing our planet.

 

In our reading lessons, we have just begun looking at There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom by Louis Sachar. This has already sparked fascinating discussions around self-esteem and kindness - the children have shown wonderful empathy and impressive inference skills. 

 

 

In maths this half term, we will be beginning our unit on fractions. As we move through this half term, we will be learning to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. In addition to this, we also practise our arithmetic skills and times tables every day. Each week, the children have a focus objective, which is taught and practised throughout the week.

 

Here are our topics for other areas of the curriculum:

 

SPaG – Word classes and subjunctive form

Science - Electricity

RE - Judaism 

PSHE – Celebrating Differences

PE - Tag Rugby

Art – Angry Planet (textiles focus)

Spanish - Presenting Myself

Music – Brass

Computing - Online Safety

 

Eagles class have returned to school with the same hardworking attitudes and their engagement with all of their learning is outstanding. We are all looking forward to another busy and exciting half term!

In our writing lessons so far this term, we have been consolidating our understanding of the mechanics of writing. We have explored sentence types, conjunctions and relative clauses.

The children have shown that they have a good foundation in these topics so they will be refining their skills to ensure confidence and efficiency. In addition to this, we also practise our arithmetic skills and times tables every day. Each week, the children have a focus objective, which is taught and practised throughout the week.
