Spring 2

Theme Learning Question:

Where does Britain fit into the World?


Curriculum Coverage:

In Maths we will be looking at algebra, units of measure (metric and imperial) as well as measure (perimeter, area and volume). Within algebra, we will be: finding rules; creating rules; using rules; formulae and solving equations. In metric and imperials units of measure, we will be: converting between imperial and metric units; problem-solving between the two and converting between miles and kilometres. Finally, in perimeter, area and volume we will be looking at: the area of parallelograms and triangles, problem-solving with area and perimeter as well as volumes of a cuboid. 


In English, our text is, 'The Selfish Giant'. This text is a classic written by Oscar Wilde. Within our English lessons, we will be exploring: the difference between the language of speech and the language of writing; recognising vocabulary and structures of formal speech and writing, including subjunctive forms; passive verbs; how to use a semi-colon to mark the boundaries between independent clauses. 


In Science, we will be looking at how we can work scientifically. We will also be entering the 3M Young Innovators Project. This will see us design and create a project before looking at the science behind our ideas and entering it into a national competition. 


Within our Geography lessons, we going to be looking at World Trade and where Britain fits into the World when it comes to importing and exporting products. Throughout this theme, we will also be looking at Fair Trade, countries that have high GDP (and why) and Brexit. 


RE sees us continuing to look at, 'What matters most to Christians and Humanists?' We will be looking at the rules around Christianity and Humanism, what codes each live by and the idea of peace being the most valuable thing.
