Mr Payne’s Class 2018-19
Spring Term 2
In Spring term 2, we will be focusing on the classic text: The Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
We will be taking inspiration from the book to write a number of fiction and non-fiction texts, including: A character description of the Iron Man, a diary entry and a poem to name a few.
We will begin by finishing off our fractions unit by looking at adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator and comparing and ordering fractions. After we will be focussing on shape.
In science, we will be focussing on plants. The children will look at naming the different parts of a plant and their function. They will also work in partners to investigate how either the cold, no water or no light effects the plant.
In geography/history, we will be using different maps of the Lightmoor area to investigate how Lightmoor has changed over the years. The children will also look at the squatter’s cottage and how it is an important part of Lightmoor’s heritage.
In RE, we are going to be studying Sikhism and how it compares and contrasts to Christianity. We will begin by going to the local Gurdwara and experiencing the Sikh religion first hand.
In indoor PE, we will be linking it closely to our RE topic of Sikhism in India and Telford by studying Bhangra. We will begin by having the Eclectic Dance Group come and give us a workshop on the style of bhangra. In outdoor PE, we will be focussing on developing our tennis skills through playing various mini games of tennis in groups.
