Christmas is in the air!! The nights draw in, the season of hot chocolate and cosying up by the fire is almost upon us. Welcome back to term 2. This term we have a busy schedule preparing for the Dragons Den.
Dare you enter the Dragon's Den and market your very own inventive festive lights decoration? Take part in a Dragon's Den briefing session and learn about the challenges that lie ahead as designers of festive lights and decorations with an electrical buzz. Use motors, switches, bulbs and buzzers to make your product the stand-out choice of the dragons.
Using our topic as a stimulus, the children will learn how to write a persuasive speech and a biography. Our class read to support the children with their writing is The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau.
We will be developing children’s understanding of fractions, moving on to comparing, adding and subtracting unrelated fractions using common denominators and formal methods. We will be encouraging problem solving of fraction problems while exploring efficient methods.
It's electrifying in science. We shall be learning to construct electrical circuits ready for our festive light designs.
This term we shall explore the different people involved in the Christmas story. Was Herod just misunderstood? How does kindness help us live our lives. Does the world really need a Messiah? Discussions aplenty coming our way.
