Learning in Autumn Term

This term, the children will be learning all about Wild Waters! As part of their learning, they will research rivers in Yorkshire and around the world, take a closer look at rivers in North America (including a look at Niagara Falls) and learn more about the environmental issues facing our planet such as water pollution.  

The children will be reading 'Song of the Dolphin Boy' and developing detailed character descriptions based on the book. The children will also develop an explanation text on the life cycle of Salmon based on "An incredible journey", write a cinquain poem about themselves and create a persuasive speech about looking after the environment.   

The children will be continuing their work on multiplication, division and fractions, introducing them to timesing 2-digit numbers (by 2-digit, 3-digit and 4-digit numbers) and short division. Their work on fractions will involve decimals this term and we will finish the term with some work on perimeter and area and statistics.  

The children will be learning about Space. 
Immersive Day

We had a jam-packed Immersive Day with lots of fun activities related to our new Wild Waters topic: we created art work inspired by Yorkshire rivers; tested out different materials for sandbags; completed a few puzzles about flooding; create rafts that could float and carry a load (a stamp/rubber definitely count!); completed a map of the largest rivers around the world and put on our detective hats to solve lots of puzzles and "Escape the Rapids"!
