Welcome to term 4 in Cedar class.
This term we will be learning about George Muller, who played an important role in Bristol during the 1800s by founding several orphanages in the city.
Our English text will link with this topic as we are basing our writing around an adapted version of 'Oliver Twist'. We will be reading the text and answering questions about it as well as completing different pieces of response writing, including diary entries written in role. Later in the term, we will learn more about writing newpaper reports, continuing to link them with the story of Oliver Twist.
This term, our maths learning will continue to focus on fractions. We will be revisiting some learning from last term to ensure that the children are secure in their understanding, as well as learning about equivalent fractions, comparing and ordering fractions, and adding and subtracting them! After fractions, we will move on to cover some of our measurement objecives which cover topics such as money, mass, volume and telling the time!
Our learning about George Muller will be evident in our topic work, which will take a history focus. The children will research George Muller to discover more about his life and work and consider the impact that he had on Bristol, as well as considering what life was like in an orphanage. In art, we will look at the work of L.S. Lowry and use a similar style to create our own artworks.
We will continue to swim until the end of this term and our other PE session will continue to be on a Wednesday afternoon indoors.
