Term 2 Overview

In Science this term we will be conducting a number of practical investigations looking at the properties of materials. We will then move on to explore the main parts of the human circulatory system and the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals, including humans.

We will also be preparing for our Christmas Year 4/5 show in dance and music. Design Technology and Art are also linked to the Christmas theme and in R.E our children will be learning about the meaning of Advent.

In English we will be reading “The Borrowers” by Mary Norton and our writing will be drawn from themes in this book. In Maths our focus this term will be on multiplication, division, perimeter, area and addition.
