This half term we are learning about Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his teams quest to be the first person to reach the South Pole.
We will be exploring the key events from their treacherous expedition and reading extracts from Captain Scott's diary. The children will be using their new knowledge to create leaflets, persuasive letters, diary entries and news reports.
Near the tail end of this half term the children will move onto discovering the truth behind Yeti.
Our topic this half-term takes us from Antarctic to the other side of the globe to the Arctic. We will be exploring the lives and history of inuits who are located in numerous countries in the Arctic.
We will also be exploring Inuit art and sculptures, recreating some of these during our Art and DT lessons.
This half-term we will be consolidating our mathematical learning from the past year. Each week we will be exploring a different area of the Maths curriculum.
We will be focusing on:
- Position and direction
- Number and place value
- Patterns and sequences
- Calculation (all operations)
- Solving problems.
We will be continuing our problem solving lessons every Thursday.

It is always nice to compliment in school learning by having some fun trips to museums and outdoor centres at the weekends, or during the school holidays. They provide an excellent opportunity to delve into a subject more and increase one's knowledge further. See below for some places to go.
