Term 2 Overview
Our topic this term is storms and shipwrecks! We will be learning about why storms happen, the devastation they cause and we will be doing a case study about the Great Storm of 1987.
There have been a number of notorious shipwrecks and we will be researching and investigating a few of them including the Titanic, the Lusitania and the Mary Rose. In the year group, our three classrooms document the Titanic’s journey from a great ship of splendour, to seeing it as it sinks and finally as a wreck at the bottom of the ocean.
We will be basing the majority of our English work on our exciting topic for this term.
For Maths this term, we will be focusing on fractions before moving onto geometry- including position and direction. Arithmetic will be continually practised throughout the term to ensure confidence and fluidity.
At the end of term, we will be doing some Christmas activities including some work linked to ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’ by Dr Seuss. We will also be making some festive decorations to decorate the classroom and of course there will be the traditional Christmas party on the last day of term.
