Our thematic learning - Spring term 2024

Our topic this term is ‘Crime Busters’. During this topic, we will be exploring crime and punishment from 1066 to the 21st century.

In English, we will be using a range of text types linked to our topic including both fiction and non-fiction. We will be starting off by investigating a crime scene in class and writing a letter to inform the authority about the crime. We will then move on to read Oliver Twist and understand and annotate play scripts along with writing our own.

In Maths, we are learning about shape including symmetry, decimals and fractions, measurement including money and formal written multiplication and division methods.

Our Science focus this term will be linked to Crime Busters and we will be learning about electricity. We will also be developing our scientific enquiry skills through practical enquiries.

In History, we will be looking at different aspects of crime and punishment throughout the time period and this will also include visits from members of the uniformed public services along with a 6-week workshop working closely with the local police force.

In Art, we will be focusing on portrait work. Our work will be inspired by the female portrait artist, Frida Kahlo. Our final piece will be a self-portrait and will include features of Frida Kahlo’s work. In DT, we will be focusing on electricity, which closely links to our science focus for this term. We will look into designing and constructing an electrical system that could help keep us safe.

In Computing, we will continue to follow the Rising Stars curriculum, where we will be designing a toy using technology. To support this we will be learning how to be HTML editors.

During the first half term in Music, we are focusing on being able to sing as part of an ensemble, and we will be learning a well-known song from the Oliver Twist musical. We will also be looking into theatrical music techniques and embedding this into our own performances.

In languages, we will continue to learn French and will be looking at how to say and write different foods and use this knowledge to be able to form sentences such as questions that we will be able to use when we go shopping.
