Spring Term 2024 Learning

In maths, the children have been finding methods to identify equivalent fractions, improper fractions and mixed numbers using a variety of representations, including fractions of shapes, number lines and fraction walls.  

In Science we are learning about properties and changes in materials. This unit of work will teach the children about different materials, their uses and their properties, as well as dissolving, separating mixtures and irreversible changes. The children will sort and classify objects according to their properties. They will explore the properties of materials to find the most suitable material for different purposes. 

In writing, we are using the diary of Robert Falcon Scott to write our own diaries and will be using the animation 'The Present' created by Jacob Frey - an animation about a young boy who seems to prefer his computer games to anything else.
