Our learning journey topic this term is the book How To Train Your Dragon.
In English, we will be basing our writing on our class text of How To Train Your Dragon. We will be writing persuasive letters to different characters in the story. Excitingly, we will create our own dragons and write manuals explaining how to look after them. We will even write stories set on the Island of Berk. Also, we will write our own poems based on the poem Have You Seen My Dragon? In our whole class reading sessions, we will be discussing the themes of the books such as; what it means to be a hero, living up to other people's expectations, bullying and what the best way is to train a dragon.
Our science topic this term is rocks and soils. We will be sorting rocks according to their properties and thinking about how their properties make them suitable for different uses. Also, we will be testing rocks to see if they are permeable and durable. Furthermore, we will be learning about the different ways rocks can be formed. In the topic of soils, we will be investigating what soils consist of and creating our own soil smoothies.
In P.E this half-term we will be focusing on swimming, dance and gymnastics.
Mrs Baird will be teaching us the names of different parts of the body, and the adjectives to describe them.
We will be learning about coding in order to create our own dragon games using the app sketch nation. We will also be using book creator to create a That's Not My Dragon ebook for Red Class.
Connected to the our science topic, we will be finding out about where and how volcanoes occur and their role in the formation of igneous rocks.
We will be using mechanisms to create our own moving dragons. Also, we will be creating photo frames for Christmas presents.
