Term 5 Learning




Overwhelming and mighty. Mother nature's awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.


Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth's breath-taking power.


Watch out! Volcanologists detect formidable rumblings from an extinct volcano in Scotland's capital. Red alert! What would you do?


Next term in Maths we will be looking at: 

  • Identifying turns and angles.
  • Right angles in shapes.
  • Identifying horizontal and vertical lines.
  • Identifying parallel and perpendicular lines. 
  • Recognising and describing 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Making 3D shapes.


In Term 6 our topic will be: 


Heroes and Villains

Martin Luther, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson? 
Someone from your family or the local fire fighters? 
There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire the most?

Learn and sing songs about the infamous villains, 

Bonnie and Clyde and Cruella De Vil. Clap out a rhythm and get to a beat.


Write a riddle, a comic strip and change a traditional tale, develop dialogue and character and a biographical article.


How does it feel to do good things and bad? Which feels best and why? Can you do a good deed that changes the world? 


Then let's work together to write a really good rap to remember history's greats. There are lots to include! Perform to an audience and teach them the words so that they can all rap along. 


Perhaps we can be heroes- just for one day?
