Term 1 Highlights
We began the year by creating our own virtual storybook based on the book ‘The Promise’ by Nicola Davies. We looked at the strengths of our community and what we could do to improve it. We used this as our inspiration to write our own stories and create illustrations.
Here are some examples of our work:
In English, we have been enjoying the book ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian and our writing outcome was to write a diary entry. The book centres around a young boy called William who is evacuated to the countryside during the Second World War. To begin with, we explored different experiences of evacuees, both positive and negative. Following this, we explored the purpose of a diary entry and what we would need to include to make it effective. We practised and applied our skills in using expanded noun phrases, adverbial phrases, subordinate clauses and reported speech. We used to this write a diary entry which we then edited and published.
We then explored the book, ‘ Rose Blanche’, using the images to explore the devastating effects of Nazi occupation during World War Two. We used drama to explore the feelings of different characters and our reading skills to infer and predict. We revisited the skills we had practised this term to write a letter in character.
In Mathematics, we have been learning about the place value of numbers to 1 million. This included representing these numbers in different ways, comparing and ordering, rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10 000 and using this knowledge to problem solve. We also learned to use negative numbers in context and translate Roman Numerals.
Following this, we learned to add and subtract numbers to 1 million, including exchanging when needed. We learned to estimate and approximate using our knowledge of rounding, along with how to use the inverse to check our answers. We applied these skills to solving multi-step addition and subtraction problems, learning to underline key information in a question. We used visual representations such as bar models to support us with this.
In Enquiry, we have been exploring the question, ‘How have world events shaped our lives?’ We began by exploring which events the children thought had shaped their lives. We then explored the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. We learned about why slaves were taken from West Africa, identified the countries involved and learned about the experiences of slaves during the ‘Middle Passage’ and on plantations. Following this we explored why the slave trade was abolished, including important individuals that contributed to this. We explored the legacy of slavery right up to the current day, including the Black Lives Matter movement. We wrote to Mayor Rees with our opinions on the replacement of the Edward Colston statue.
We then learned about the outbreak of the First World War and how this war was fought through ‘Trench Warfare’. We learned the poem, ‘In Flanders Fields’ and created our own images using the imagery from the poem. We created pieces of art using the poem as an inspiration.
After that, we learned about the Second World War. This included examining the causes of the war, The Holocaust (including the experience of Anne Frank), how key military events affected the outcome of the war, The Blitz and the changing role of women.
We then set about our challenge to build a submarine. We investigated different forces including air resistance, friction, water resistance and gravity. We used this knowledge to design and build our own submarine models and explained why this would be a good design.
See below some pictures of our work.
