Summer 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, as well as reading for pleasure.
In writing we will deepen our use and application of the different skills necessary to be a writer. We will be reading George’s Marvellous Medicine and using this text to inspire our writing. We will use these skills across a range of genre and learn to edit and improve effectively. We will explore the power of adverts to develop our skills.
In Maths we will be focused on fractions. We will be developing our reasoning skills to independently record our thoughts and justifications. We will deepen our understanding of fractions through problem solving in a range of contexts.
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.
