Odysseus poems and new chapters inspired by the book Falling Out of the Sky

  • English - We are studying Skellig by David Almond - looking at narrative writing, the use of speech and scene setting. The work is linked with the rich poetry of William Blake which will inspire us to produce our own poetry. We will be writing creative individual and collaborative pieces.
  • Maths:  we will be consolidating our understanding of decimals, percentages and fractions.  Our work will also cover ratio and proportion as well as measurement and statistics.
  • Science:  we are learning about 'Evolution and Inheritance' and 'Living Things and their Habitats' this term.
  • Geography:  we will be learning about whether our school is in the best location.  We will learn how to use digital maps and find position on OS maps using 6-figure grid references.  
  • P.E:  this term we will be improving our tennis and hockey skills. We will also have half a term of being taught dance and handball by specialist teachers.
  • RE: we will be studying Humanist beliefs and how they compare to those of other religions.
