Term 5 - Pirates




This term we are learning about pirates!  It promises to be a really fun term which we know the children are going to enjoy.  We will be looking at famous pirates, making our own portholes and creating our own old treasure map.


In Literacy we will be finding out lots of facts and learning new vocabulary to help us with our descriptive writing.  We will be performing some pirate poetry and writing our own pirate adventure.  Finally we will be following instructions to make some pirate craft.  Our school trip on Monday 29th April to the Historic Dockyard in Chatham will see us go on a real pirate ship and learn how to make rope!


In Maths this term we will be looking at arrays and grouping which will lead us on to multiplication and division, fractions and position and direction.  We will be programming Beebots in ICT to help us.


In Science we will be learning about plants.  We will be learning to identify and name a variety of common plants, and learning to describe their basic structure. 


RE sees us continuing our learning on Hinduism, and in PSHE we will be exploring relationships and how we get along with each other.
