Class 5N

Spring Term - 2020

 

 Welcome back!

I hope you have had an excellent Christmas and New Year and are refreshed ready for the spring term! Our topic this half term is ‘Space’ so grab your astronaut suit! We’re going into an intergalactic world of incredible stars and planets.

We will be looking at how the earth’s orbit links to duration of time like days, months and years. We will also focus on the chronology of human exploration of space and how we still learn new aspects about this vast topic regularly.  

Our class book this term is – ’War of the Worlds by H G Wells ’, which will hopefully spark our imaginations when we write our own space adventure stories. Through exploring space we will gain an understanding of how we fit into our amazing solar system; the vital role the sun plays and how we as humans have fared when travelling through our atmosphere into the unknown.

The spring term will see us focusing on the mastery of fractions, decimals and percentages.  We shall also continue to improve our mental maths and reasoning skills. Maths mastery challenge (Zero the Hero) will continue where children will solve problems and equations and earn themselves a circular treat!!!!

So here we go. Let’s countdown 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF!
