Look what we have been learning about

What will we be learning this half term?

 

Our theme this half term is 'Crime and Punishment through the Ages' in History we will be looking at how crimes and punishments have changed from Roman times through to Modern day.

Our English work this half term will follow our theme starting with the classic poem 'The Highwayman' we will be looking at poetic language throughout and the characters, before creating our own poem.

In Maths we will be having a big focus on Place Value as well as looking at Area and finishing with division, of course we will continue to focus on learning our tables daily.

In Science we will be starting our new topic of sound, finding out how sounds travel, pitch and volume. Then investigate materials to see which will provide the best insulation against sound.

 

 

 

Science at Witton Park

 

Every Friday morning we have been walking up to Witton Park Academy for our Science lessons. Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the skills of working scientifically this means we will be planning experiments, predicting, collecting results and thinking about what this tells us. 

Have a look at us in action!

Computing

 

We have started a new unit as we have completed our research on China. We are going to be exploring music making software over the next few weeks, however we started using Isle of Tune today. This website enables you to create a piece of music using elements of an island, children build up a picture that then creates music when played back. The children had a great time experimenting this afternoon (6.2.18). Why not have a go at home and see what else you can create! (Make sure you ask an adult first before using the internet).
