Our country; our land! When the developers come!
We will be exploring how Britain is divided in to counties, using grid references and learning about different features of maps including local landmarks. We will look at the development of Barming over time. Do you know the year our school was built? Are we on the original site of the school? Our persuasive writing will be inspired by Carl's story in Pixar's UP! and the demolition of his much treasured by property developers. We will consider what would make a better, more suitable site for development.
In maths, we will be revising key topics around place value and the four operations of number whilst consolidating our use of mathematical vocabulary involving factors, multiples, prime, square and cube numbers.
In English, our writing will be inspired by an emotive, short, animated clip called 'Little Freak' and we will be focusing on creating atmosphere and emotion in our own setting and character descriptions. The animated tale links nicely to the real-life story of Victorian, Joseph Merrick who was known at the time as The Elephant Man.
We will transfer our writing skills to non-fiction, writing biographies about Joseph later in the term.
Children to come into school wearing PE kits. Red shorts, house colour t-shirt, tracksuit and trainers.
Earrings must be removed before the lesson and by the children themselves. Unfortunately, if earrings cannot be removed, the child will not be able to participate in the lesson.
