Autumn 1 - Journeys on Land

Our topic this half term has been Journeys on Land.  We have used the text Journey to Jo’burg as a stimulus for our work.  We have written our own stories based on the plot of the book.  In addition, we wrote persuasive letters to Naledi and Tiro (the main characters) encouraging them not to make the perilous journey from their village to Johannesburg.  As part of History, we have been exploring black history and wrote a biography about Nelson Mandela.

Autumn 1 - Pop Art

In Art, we looked at the artist Andy Warhol and his work around Pop Art, where he repeated the same picture in different colours and styles.  We used this to create our own pop art of animals that live in Africa.

Autumn 1 - Science

Refraction - We explored the concept of refraction in Science.  We found out that a pencil in water looks like it is bent.  We found out this is because light travels through air and bends when this changes to water (a different medium).

In Science, we have been learning about Light.  As part of this topic, we have looked closely at the eye.  We created a model of the eye and then used this to help us create a labelled diagram of the eye and an explanation of how they eye works.

Autumn 2 - Spy kids

Our topic this half term has been Spy Kids.  We have used the text Stormbreaker as a stimulus for our work.  We have written a variety of pieces of work this half term from blurbs to character descriptions; persuasive adverts to a script for our Dragon’s Den interviews. In addition, we wrote an extensive piece of writing crafting our own spy story, which many children have left open for a sequel.  As part of History and Geography, we have been exploring Ancient Egyptian civilisation and what they were famous for.

Autumn 2 - Design technology

We have been creating canopic jars, in which the Egyptians kept sacred gifts to take to the afterlife with them.

Autumn 2 - Ancient Egypt

Our Ancient Egypt experience consisted of five stations: Hieroglyphics, culture, famous monuments, mummification and climate. We had to research what they all meant and then evidence it in a way that we understood.

Autumn 2 - Maths

In Maths this half term, we have been covering all different aspects of fractions: simplifying, equivalence, adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators to name a few. In addition, we even added to help, when dividing fractions with an integer.
