Miss Thompson and Mrs Stoker
Welcome to Herons with Miss Thompson and Mrs Stoker. We’re really happy to be back after the holiday!
Although it’s a new year, we still have the same high expectations of ourselves and each other. We continuing to strive to make brilliant progress this year to finish off our time at Manor Court.
Our enquiry question this term is, ‘Is all trade fair?’ We’re going to learn about trade around the world and where we get some of our resources from. We’ll consider whether trade is fair and what makes it so. For the second half of the term, we’ll be learning all about the Ancient Maya civilisation and drawing our own conclusions about what caused it to decline.
In English, we’ll begin by reading Skellig by David Almond. We’ll use this to inspire some horror writing and create a sense of suspense and atmosphere. After that, we’ll focus on The Explorer by Katherine Rundell, honing our writing skills even further.
In maths, we’ll finish off measurement before moving on to area and perimeter, algebra, ratio and proportion and statistics.
In science, we will cover animals including humans in which we’re going to learn about the circulatory system. This builds on previous learning from earlier years.
We can’t wait to get going again!
