This term we will be looking at and learning about PERSUASIVE TEXTS: how they are structured, their many different forms and writing our own from all we have learnt. We will also be studying INSTRUCTIONS and looking at the language used to produce an effective set of instructions. We will also be looking at POETRY and it's different forms. Finally, we will be learning about MYTHS AND LEGENDS and looking at how and why these were written and how they have evolved over the centuries.
In our daily maths lessons we will be learning about aspects of number work, geometry and statistics and how these are used in our day to day lives. We will, whenever possible, be applying our maths learnt in practical activities. We will continue with our weekly maths challenge and to learn our KIRFs.
Our topics this term are THE HOLIDAY SHOW and MYTHS AND LEGENDS.
