We will begin the second half term with a short project based around "St. George and the Dragon", a painting by Uccello, which we will use to practise the conventions of speech. We will continue to regularly use a variety of multi-modal resources to stimulate discussion, develop reading comprehension skills and provide a basis for writing in different ways. We will study "The Runner" by Keith Gray and consider the dilemmas posed for the characters in this book. We will use the Bug Club Comprehension interactive resources and workbooks as a focus for guided reading, using inference and deduction. We will learn how to write and perform play-scripts. We will use lists of Ambitious Vocabulary to widen our word choices, and spelling accuracy will be monitored through quizzes and assessments.
This term we will be learning all about sound.
We will explore what makes sound, how sounds travel, and how our ears work to receive sounds.
We will also investigate how you can change the volume, and pitch, of a sound, and if it's possible to block out sounds.
