Spring 1 - Lost in Space!

We are mathematicians...

In maths, we will be building on our Year 4 learning of calculating area. We will be able to explain what area is and use counting and multiplication as a strategies. To deepen our learning, we will explore calculating area of rectilinear shapes and use this knoweldge to solve problems. Using multiplication and divison, we will describe the changes in measurement and use this to solve comparison and change problems. 


We are writers...

In English this half term, we will be studying the book ‘Orion Lost’. We will use this as inspiration to write our own narrative about a journey through space going wrong and landing at an unknown location. Following on from this, we will develop our writing techniques to write a biography about an important figure!


We are scientists

Our focus for this half term is 'Earth and Space'. Each week, we will be developing our scientific knoweldge and enquiry to be able to answer our big question: What moves and how do we know? We will explore the different planets in our solar sytem and how they rotate around the sun. We will develop our understanding of day and night as well as the movement of the moon around the Earth.


We are historians

In history, we will be learning about the Anglo-saxons and Vikings. We will explore why they invaded and settled in Britain, What life was really like for them and what they left behind.



We are designers 

In DT, we will be working towards making our very own Automata design.



In PSHE, we will be learning about how our everyday choices can impact the environment. We will learn how to show compassion for our environment.
