  • We will be looking at different examples of persuasive texts and identifying the main features

 

Maths

Angles and Shapes

  • To know that an angle is a property of shape or a description of a turn
  • To identify angles inside a 2-D shape
  • To recognise right angles and their relationship to quarter turns
  • To understand the terms ‘acute’ and ‘obtuse’ and create acute and obtuse angles using manipulatives
  • To use a right angle checker to identify pairs of lines that are perpendicular
  • To draw a line perpendicular to a given line using a ruler and a right angle checker
  • To identify pairs of lines that appear to be parallel and explain what this means
  • To identify rectangles as four-sided shapes with four right angles and recognise a square as a rectangle with four sides of equal length
  • To make and begin to draw 2-D shapes and describe the properties of 2-D shapes
  • To draw a 2-D shape that has specified properties and calculate the perimeter of the shape
  • To match a description of a shape to a 3-D shape
  • To use a mirror to find line symmetry in 2-D shapes

Measures

  • To read weighing scales with different intervals
  • To weigh and compare masses with mixed units
  • To estimate the mass of an object
  • To read scales when measuring volume
  • To measure and compare capacities with mixed units
  • To estimate the capacity of a container
  • To use bar models to represent addition and subtraction problems involving measures
  • To solve addition and subtraction problems involving measures
  • To use bar models to represent multiplication and division word problems involving measures
  • To solve multiplication and division problems involving measures
  •  To apply knowledge and understanding of measures to solve real-world problems

Science

  • Working scientifically
  • Comparing how things move on different surfaces.

  • Noticing that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.

  • Observing how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.

  • Comparing and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials.

  • Describing magnets as having two poles.

  • Predicting whether two magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing.

 

Topic - Circuit Breakers, Code Makers

This will be a topic taught mainly through Design Technology and Computing.  We will be designing, creating and evaluating our own electronic games.  We will be using Micro:bits to continue our coding journey and learn about physical computing.

See our Long Term Plans  for details of this year's coverage.

PE lessons will be on Wednesdays and Fridays - please ensure that you have your kit in school, and that it has your name on it.
