We will be asking questions such as :
How were people affected in Germany in WW2?
Why did so many people leave Germany?
Who were the Jews?
What was the Holocaust?
In literacy, we will be continuing with our book 'The Boy In The Tower' and delving more into the characters of Ade , Mum and Gaia , plus some new characters. We will also be reading 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas', in line with our topic work. We will be using both of these texts to fine tune our comprehension skills and develop our understanding of why authors use a variation of persuasive devices in their writing .
As SATs are fast approaching we will be consolidating all those gaps in our grammar, learning and making sure we are familiar with those tricky spelling rules .
Reasoning questions will be the main focus of this half term, we will learn to ANNOTATE, ANNOTATE, ANNOTATE and make sure we follow every step (remember, some questions have up to 5 steps before you get to the answer). We will carry on with our weekly arithmetic tests , to grab those easy marks and our times table challenges. We will also look at co-ordinates , data handling , reflection , symmetry and translation .
