In Term 4, we are continuing our writing non-chronological report based on animals. We will then extend our knowledge of narrative writing by focusing on a first person perspective. We will be developing our description of a setting detail and building atmosphere through precise selection of vocabulary. We will then finish the term off with writing a formal letter based on a complaint - we will develop our formal writing skills and decide on what we could complain about.
This term we will continue looking at multiplying and dividing larger numbers together such as 2 by 1 digit numbers using a formal written method for both times and divide. This will be built upon pictorial and concrete methods. Finally we will aim to apply this to our learning of perimeter and area.
This term, we are aiming to improve our locational knowledge through identifying the position and significance of latitude, longitude, the Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Arctic and Antarctic Circle, the Prime/Greenwich Meridian and time zones (including day and night). We will practise geographical skills through using maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate features studied and use the eight points of the compass to build their knowledge of the wider world.
