English children will continue to be given opportunity to practice and develop
their joined handwriting style every morning during registration. The children will
continue to develop their understanding of the correct use of grammar and
punctuation alongside weekly spelling activities and tests. During this term the
children will be learning the skills of debating a topic so that they are able to take
part in a reasoned argument to present their views. They will also consider the
question Should we go into Space? and present their thoughts both in writing and
orally. The children will develop their reading and research skills by answering
questions and researching topics linked to our theme of space using non-fiction
books. They will work on two units of poetry and write their own science fiction
stories. Our class novel is Georges Secret Key To The Universe by Lucy and
Stephen Hawking.
N.B English homework will be given out on a Thursday and should be
completed and handed in by the following Wednesday.
Computing Children will learn how to create an animation first using paper and
then using computers. They will plan and design an animation which shows a
rocket taking off and blasting through space. Later in the term children will learn to
use simple email to send messages to each other.
RE- During first half term RE will be delivered by Mr Beauvanizer who
will concentrate on the stories from the new testament and how
Christians interpret the stories and follow the teachings of Jesus in
their every day lives.
PE PE lessons will continue to be on Tuesdays (Net/Wall Games) and
Wednesdays. (Dance with Coach Elliot from FUNDA)

Our Science trip to UCLAN Science Centre will take place on
January 2016.

Science The children will cover two science topics this term, the first is
Earth and Space and the second is Forces. They will deepen their scientific
knowledge and understanding through a variety of activities and investigations
studying the solar system and forces and their effects on movement. We will
be following Tim Peake on the International Space Station and the scientific
experiments he and his fellow astronauts are carrying out in space.
History The children will research space travel and put it into a timeline
investigating different significant events in space exploration. They will look in
detail at the first man on the moon and also be following Tim Peake making
history on the International Space Station.
Geography The children will be using maps, globes and digital/computer
mapping to locate countries in Europe and other countries involved in space
exploration.

Art Children will use dry and wet media to make
different marks, lines, patterns and shapes within
a drawing/picture. They will learn about
perspective and vanishing points and will create
pictures in the style of Vincent Van Gogh, Peter
Max and Peter Thorpe using these skills.
DT Children will make a moon buggy toy using
mechanical systems such as cams pulleys and
gears. They will learn how to join axles to a
chassis, how to fix a weight to the chassis, how to
make a ramp and test their vehicle.
