This Term's Topics
Topic - The Victorians Science - Forces Maths - Key skills & Measure PE - Athletics
Welcome to our Class 12 page!
We are so happy to have all of the children back together! They are settling back into school really well.
This term our topic is The Victorians, we will follow the children's lines of enquiry and learn about many aspects of the topic. See the weblinks below to find out more!
In Maths, we will be revising key skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about shape, space and measure.
We will continue to use doodle maths in school, it is a fantastic programme that tailors learning for each child. Children should practise this at home too.
In English we will be teaching the key skills of spelling, punctuation and grammar through our English lessons. The writing will be linked to our topic.
We love reading! We complete daily reading lessons with the children and also listen to the individually every week. We have a lovely new set of books the children can borrow and bring home to read.
We will be investigating:
- Friction and the effects of air resistance, water resistance and buoyancy.
- Mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allowing a smaller force to have a greater effect.
The children will be taking measurements, using a range of scientific equipment and recording their results.
In PE this term we will be focusing on athletics, we will be running, throwing and jumping our way through the rest of the term!
