Term 6 Learning
The Blue Abyss
Our topic this term is 'The Blue Abyss'. We will be looking at all the amazing plants and animals which can be found under the sea.
This term we will be writing adverts to encourage people to go scuba diving in The Great Barrier Reef in Australia. We will then turn these adverts into promotional videos. We will then begin looking at newspaper reports and write our own reports on the condition of The Great Barrier Reef and how we can work together to protect it. In the final weeks of the term, we will focus on writing, reading, analysing and performing poetry. This will be exciting as it will draw together everything which we have learnt about the ocean throughout the term.
During the first weeks of this term, we will be looking at shape. This will involve naming and describing both 2D shape and 3D shape. We will discuss their properties and sort them accordingly. We will then move on to recapping the 4 main operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication and subtraction. We will use and apply our knowledge to solve problems involving fractions, money and time.
During Term 6, we will be looking at the amazing creatures found in the ocean. We will work on sketching these animals and
developing our observational drawing skills. We will then move onto looking at texture, focusing on creating beach and ocean scenes using a range of materials. In the final weeks of term, we will be using our creativity skills to create 3D models of the ocean layers.
Music and PE
We will continue learning how to play the Ukulele with Miss Coombes. We are really enjoying these lessons and making great progress. In PE, we will be focusing on athletics. We will be preparing for sports day in June.
Last term, we started thinking about food chains and how micro plastics can travel from the ocean onto our dinner plates. We will continue developing our understanding of food chains this term, looking at producers, prey and predators. We will also be classifying and grouping animals which are found in the ocean and land.
We develop our computing skills constantly during our lessons. This term we will be specifically focusing on coding and creating our own moving, coded submarines.
