“Are beasts always dangerous?”
This half term is an exciting topic – Dragons! The children will be given a chance to show off what they have learned about different forms of writing so far.
The children will explore poetry by Jackie Morris – “Tell Me a Dragon”. They will have a go at writing about their own dragon based on the book.
This year, we have practised our persuasive techniques. The children will write a letter of application to apply for the job of a dragon tamer.
Using the book “The Clockwork Dragon” by Jonathan Emmett, the children will write their own instructions about how to trap a dragon.
Finally, the children will write a short story based on the painting “Saint George and the Dragon” by Paolo Uccello.
This half term we will be revising rules that have already been taught this year such as:
We will revisit reading times of both digital (12 hour and 24 hour) and analogue clocks. The children will also practise problem solving from time tables and completing test style questions.
Multiplication and Division
The children have been working very hard on their multiplication and division facts at home. This half term, we will be looking at multiplication and division methods, to help the children when working with larger numbers.
It is time to revisit rounding whole numbers to the nearest 10,100 and 1000, as well as rounding decimals to the nearest whole number and 1 decimal place.
The children will recap units of measure, and apply their understanding in problems including data and graphs.
To link in with our Dragon topic, the children will study the artist Paolo Uccello.
Then, they will have a go at drawing and painting parts of his pictures in their own way.
Finally, the children will create a dragon batik, and evaluate their end product.
