Spring 2 term continues with WW2. We will learn all about the blitz and what life was like in Britain During WW2.
In English, our writing will once again be linked to our topic. We will be writing diary recounts (including a recount of our trip to Stibbington), explanation texts and newspapers. We will be teaching the children how to improve their writing by using adjectives, adverbs, openers, conjunctions and paragraphs. In addition to this, we will have a new set of spellings for the half term as well as continuing with our bi weekly spelling patterns.
In Maths, we will be continuing our work on fractions, moving on to decimals, money and time. Each Maths lesson will begin with a fluency task. We will continue to focus on quick recall of multiplcation facts up to 12x12, number order, number patterns and using known facts to calculate trickier calculations.
In Science, we will be investigating sound.
In Computing, the children will be becoming HTML editors.
In DT we will be creating our own working torch.
In RE we will be learning about Anne Frank.
