This half term we will be looking at the book Everest with A.J by Matt Dickinson. This is an exciting new book we are reading as part of the Leicestershire Power Reads project. In October we attended a launch event for the project where we met the authors of Everest with AJ and The Moonlight Hare (our book from Autumn 2). We will be producing diaries, information texts and debates and arguments relating to this text. We will also be studying the story of Carmen, in preparation for our class mini-opera that we will perform in the Spring Term!
This term we will develop the calculation knowledge we have used in the previous term in order to carry out calculations with fractions and ratio, as well as converting between fractions, decimals and percentages.
This term we will be looking at the journey of life, examining the research and theory of Charles Darwin and understanding adaptation, evolution and inheritance.
To link with our theme of journeys and the Everest with AJ text, we will be examining the world's mountain ranges and understand the topographical physical features of mountain ranges across the world.
This term we will be learning about the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages and understanding the contribution of early man to modern industry, civilisation and society.
