Welcome To Caradoc Class Summer Term 2022 

 

Welcome to Summer term at Caradoc Class! Our theme for this term is Rich and Poor which will include the children learning about The Victorians. Our topic work will include learning about Queen Victoria, Victorian inventions and The Industrial Revolution.

In Science children will be learning about forces, there will be plenty of opportunities for children to complete investigations throughout this unit . We will be learning about Sir Isaac Newton and the story behind gravity.

In maths we will learn how to add and subtract decimals. Geometry will involve learning about angles and properties of polygons. Children will learn how to calculate percentages. Position and direction (2D shapes) is another area of study which will include translation and reflection of shapes, including volume. Children will also be focusing on improving their reasoning skills and problem solving skills.

English will see us reading some fantastic texts including Street Child and Moonfleet. We will be learning the features of a range of different genres this term including; biographies, instructions,  Letters, explanation texts and play scripts. Each unit will involve children learning to write their own examples as we go through and learn the grammar skills, format and features of each. 

Art this term will be based on children designing their own sculptures. We will be focusing on the artist Henry Moore and children will be looking at other artists which will inspire their individual clay pieces later on in the term. Design technology will be food based this term, where children will be given a design brief in teams and they will have to design and make a recipe.
