Our topic this half term is 'Frozen Kingdom', and we will be exploring our planet's coldest lands. Studying the terrain, climate and amazing animals you can expect in the Polar Regions. We will be learning about great explorers and putting your survival skills to the test! Do you have what it takes to be a great explorer? Pupils can also look forward to igloo building, orienteering and even a trip on the famous Titanic! They will have the chance to wow us with their amazing narrative writing, artistic skills and strong teamwork. In English we will be studying the book 'Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo. We will explore the book, its characters and use evidence from the book to support high quality responses to questioning. There will be opportunities for pupils to develop their writing skills, this will include the increased use of commas and different sentences types. In Maths our focus is on multiplication and division. We will also understand what factors, multiples, prime numbers, square and cubed numbers are. For Science we will be studying animals that live in the Polar Regions, their unique adaptations and extreme habitats. In RE our focus is 'Incarnation' and how individuals can embody different qualities and traits.
