Autumn 2

 

We have been very busy in Autumn 1 and have produced some wonderful art work and writing linked to our global theme on Power and Governance.  

      

 

History and Geography

We will continue looking at the Victorians as part of our History topic. This will link with our geography work looking at the impact of the British Empire around the world. This half term we will look Africa and the slave trade focusing on why the slave trade was abolished. In geography, we will look at the main biomes of Africa and what the land looks like. We will also explore reforms in Victorian times such as health care and education with a particular focus on social justice and what this means.

                                                      

 

Maths

This half term in maths we will explore fractions, percentages and algebra. We will also continue to consolidate our arithmetic methods covered so far. Weekly arithmetic tests will be completed on a Friday to improve knowledge and develop children’s’ stamina in the correct methods.  All children need to know their times tables and should be practising them at home.

English

We will be writing a non-chronological report this half term based on the partition in India. Children will learn about the divide of India after British rule and how the country was divided. We will start our new book study text Stella By Start light. We will be focusing on reading stamina this half term as well.
