I hope you had a super half term and had a well deserved rest after all the hard work you did last half term!

 

This half term we have lots more learning to do and an exciting trip to the cinema.

 

In English we will be reading ‘Captain Underpants’, ‘My Brother is a Superhero’ and ‘Traction Man’.  We will use our reading and learning to inform our final outcomes of a novelisation of an origin story, and our own comic strip based on a Super hero we have invented.

 

In maths, we will continue with multiplication and division skills. We will use then these skills when we learn about fractions. Following fractions, we will be learning about shapes, angles and perimeter. Finally, we will use our addition and subtraction skills.

 

In Science we will be learning about Electricity.

The key ideas we will be learning about are:

  • Identify common appliances that run on electricity.
  • Construct a simple series electrical circuit, identify and name basic parts. Identify whether a bulb will light.
  • Recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit.
  • Recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.

Our topic for  Autumn term 2 is the Superheroes! We will be finding out about the continents of the world that Superheroes protect. In history we will  learn about Stan Lee. In art we will be sketching in the style of Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby .

 

Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Please make sure you have a kit and shoes in school that are suitable for outdoor sessions.

If you have got any questions feel free to ask me at the start or end of the day, or on Class Dojo.
