Through V.I.P.E.R.S. we are exploring the plot and characters, by focusing on different types of questions each week.
We have kick started our term by becoming Vikings and creating our own Viking.
Taking inspiration from How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell we decided to create our own Viking story to share with our tribe. We have worked on writing an action scene about our dragon to entertain the rest of our Viking Tribe.
During this term, we will recapping areas of maths previously covered and developing our reasoning skills in these areas. We will be looking at the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also applying this knowledge to solve capacity and fraction problems.
This year we are learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables so keep on practising.
Our theme this term is “Snottengham to Nottingham”. During the topic, we will be looking at what a reliable source is and how this can help us collect information about Nottingham Caves. We will also be going on a trip to Nottingham Caves to help inspire our writing about what life was like in the caves. Next we are looking at Nottingham Castle and exploring why the renovation might be stopped.
