Autumn 2 topic overview.
Crime and Punishment Homework
In reading, we will be looking at a variety of texts and genre types, exploring their features and using them to improve our comprehension and inference skills. We will read The Highwayman and perform crime related poems as a link to our topic.
In writing, we will continue to use and apply the different skills of a writer. We will write instructions, narrative and narrative poetry based on Crime and Punishment. We will use these skills across a range of genre and learn to edit and improve effectively.
In Maths, we will further develop our understanding of the four operations. We will use and apply skills we have learnt to a range of contexts including problem solving and learning to explain our reasoning.
In science we will learn about electricity. We will investigate electrical insulators and conductors and how to keep safe when using electricity. We will also be scientists, carrying out experiments using fair testing and recording our results in a range of ways.
