Term 5 - Why should we preserve our locality?
Welcome back to a new Summer Term!
This Term our Enquiry question is 'Why should we preserve our locality?' and it is a History driver. We are learning about our local history and we will be campaigning to save a locally listed site - Saint Leodegar's Church, Wyberton.
As with every term, this enquiry will be thread throughout the curriculum as pupils immerse themselves in their learning!
Our writing genre for this term is explanation texts. We will learn about the features and grammar that are needed to write an explanation text so that we can plan, draft, edit and publish our own. Our explanation text will be about plants as this is our Science topic this term.
This week in English we learnt about what an explanation text is and it’s features! We ended the week with some fun group work by analysing and annotating an explanation text with its features.
In Maths this term we are learning all things fractions! This will include recapping from Year 2 and learning new content including how to add and subtract fractions.
In our Enquiry lessons this term we will be learning more about our locality, more specifically we will learn what a listed site is and learn more about listed sites near us so that we can campaign to preserve our local church!
In computing we are learning how to create a class wiki all about our local area.This week we chose some subsections that we want to include. Stay tuned to find out some fun facts about Boston and its history!
This term we are learning about athletics and different techniques we can use to improve our form.
In our first lesson we explored our running style and experimented with what we should do with our head, feet and arms. We ran with our head held up high, on our heels and even with our arms behind our backs!
We found that our running form improved and we could run faster when our head was forward facing, our arms were moving back and forth and we sprung on our toes.
