In English this term, we are focusing on historical, non-fiction texts about Martin Luther King, as we develop biographies and our formal writing skills. We will be accessing a range of sources and writing styles, looking at biography examples and identifying/ retelling information with precision- by building on our previous knowledge of chronological ordering. We will be particularly focusing on how to extend and improve our writing with independence, as well as how to use the writing features we identify within our own work. We will also need to ensure that we are applying all aspects of practised punctuation and past tense to our writing. To further our work, we will be learning how to use fronted adverbials effectively.
Within maths, we will be building on our knowledge of addition and subtraction by applying it to length and perimeter, before moving on to multiplication and division topics. Following this, we will be returning to our use of all four operations, in order to focus on reasoning/ problem solving questions which contain multi-step calculations.
This term, we are excited to have another big question that encompasses and connects multiple enquiries- both historical and religious. Our big question is- "How has the Roman Empire helped to shape our world today?" Across this unit of work, we will learn all about the Roman Empire and the beginnings of Christianity, and how we can make connections from this Era to our modern world.
