Topic

This half term our topic will be ‘High Voltage’.

We will be learning about how electricity is made and the different energy sources used to create electricity in our geography lessons. We will also use mapping skills to locate the different types of power stations around the UK.

In science, we will be learning how to create different types of circuits and how voltage affects different components in our circuits. Children will then use their knowledge to create circuits for their illuminations in D&T.

We will be continuing to design and make illuminations inspired by Blackpool illuminations with Mrs Berry. We will learn about the history of Blackpool illuminations and visit Blackpool on 3rd November.

In RE we will continue to look at the big question ‘What do religions say to us when life gets hard?’ Through this question we will be comparing different beliefs about what happens when someone dies.  

 

English

In English we will be learning how to write explanation texts before moving onto fiction writing. Watch out for the whole class texts or story maps of the texts we are learning!

Maths

We will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages this half term. Please remember

children can use ‘My Maths’ at home, which includes interactive lessons.
