Welcome back to Term 3!
This term in topic we are going to focus on
In Maths we have stated the term by looking at the written method of long division. We are going to continue with this and move on to look at how to express remainders as fractions, decimals or round them depending on the context. Once we are secure with this understanding we are going to move onto looking at fractions, as part of this unit of work we will be looking at how to add, subtract and multiply fractions with different denominators and will be ordering and comparing different fractions.
In English we are using the book Floodlands to help us write a finding story. This term we are going to really get to know the book, by writing diary entries, holding debates and acting out key scenes from the book from another characters point of view. We will also continue with our SPAG working focusing on using high level punctuation, such as colons and semi-colons to separate clauses and a range of tenses to create an atmosphere and description. Our English linked with our topic work where we will be investigating a rainforest ecosystem. This will involve us locating rainforests, in relation to the tropic of cancer and Capricorn and the animals and plants that can be found in them. We will then move on to look at the impact humans have on these vulnerable environments, such as global warming and deforestation. More information can be found on our topic web here.
