Mr Payne’s Class 2018-19
Spring Term 1
In Spring term 1, we will be focusing on the text: The 13 Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.
We will be taking inspiration from the book to write a number of fiction and non-fiction texts, including: Instructions (How to build a treehouse), narratives (creating own treehouse), non-chronological reports (looking at other buildings) and a persuasive advert to name a few.
We will begin by finishing off the written method for short division. After we will be focussing on time and then move on to fractions.
In science, we will be focussing on light. What is darkness? What surfaces reflect light the best? Does light travel in straight lines? How can we protect our skin and eyes from the sun?
In Art, we are going to be looking at famous buildings and creating artwork based on the inspiration.
As well as singing everyday with Mr Payne, we will be learning how to play the recorder.
In indoor PE, we will be using our own imaginations to create our own games using basic equipment. In outdoor PE, we will be focussing on developing our football skills.
