Term 5 Teston

Term 5





This term we are looking at:

  • The River Medway
  • Features of rivers
  • Reading maps
  • Comparing aerial photographs to maps
  • Creating field sketches
  • Making a model of a river valley


 We are looking forwards to our field trip to Teston Country park!




This term we will be looking at imaginary worlds. We will be basing our writing on the fantastic classic novel, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’. Our focus will be on getting children to use their imagination and to use exciting vocabulary. The children will be creating their own fantasy character and describing it, describing a setting and writing their own narrative story set in an imaginary world. Our main punctuation focus will be using commas and apostrophes correctly in sentences.



In Maths we will be starting off with place value and understanding the value of numbers that include tenths and hundredths. We are revising what happens to a number when we divide it by 10 and 100.

We will then be focussing our attention on length, mass, capacity and time.

We will then learn about co-ordinates, translation and fractions.  

Please continue to make use of Times Tables Rock Stars and Purple Mash Times Tables. Good knowledge of multiplication is needed throughout the maths curriculum.



In Science we are looking at states of matter


Pupils should be taught to:

  • Compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases
  • Observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)
  • Identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature.



In computing we will be learning about ‘Writing for different audiences’. We will look at adapting documents to suit an audience and genre, looking at changing the layout, font sizes and colours and images in a document.



We are learning about Judaism. We will be learning about the celebration of Bar Mitzvah and how Jewish children demonstrate their commitment to God. We will compare this with Christianity.



For outdoor PE we are learning Athletic skills. We will be focussing on short and long distance running, jumping and throwing activities.

For indoor P.E we will be participating in gymnastics focusing on different roles.
