This Half Term

Our key text we will be focusing on is 'Ice Palace' by Robert Swindells.

This is providing the base for learning across a few of our subjects. It will be inspiring our writing within our English lessons, we shall also be picking the text apart in our Reading sessions and discussing the different comprehension components as well as why the author has chosen to write the text in the way he has and the impact that it has on the story.


Our Geography topic is based around on the Amazon Rainforest; looking at the animal and plant life and the human effect on the rainforest ecosystem.


In Science we will be looking at the topic of Sound, where we will be looking how sounds are made and finding patterns between the pitch of the sound and the object that produces it.


In Computing we are going to be delving into Data loggers and we will looking on how to collect and use data.


In Art we are exploring the world of Collage. We have looked at the artist Paul Klee and Ed Emberley and discussed their key pieces of art and their style to create a final piece.


In French we are looking at countries and modes of transport. Each week we will be building sentences and adding vocabulary.
