Summer 2

Amazon to Annesley

Project Work!

 

From the Amazon to Annesley:

 

This term we will be focusing on:

Geography Knowledge:

  • Locate and name many of the world’s rivers on maps
  • Locate and name many of the world’s famous mountain regions on a map
  • Begin to recognise the climate of any given country according to its location on the map.

Physical Geography:

  • Explain why many cities of the world are situated by rivers.
  • Explain how a location fits into its wider geographical location, (mountain streams and water cycle)
  • Explain how the water cycle works.
  • Explain why water is such a valuable commodity.
  • Explain what a location (open to physical changes) might be like in the future taking into account physical features. (Coastal erosion).

Human Geography:

  • Explain why people are attracted to live by rivers.
  • Explain how a location fits into its wider geographical location. Referencing human and economical features. (town near cities)
  • Explain what a locality might look like in the future, taking account of issues impacting on human features.
  • Report on ways which humans have both improved and damaged the environment.

Annesley/Bentick mines - Pit Top

  • Appreciate how historical artefacts have allowed us to understand more about British lives in the present and past.

Appreciate that significant events in history have helped shape the country that we live in today.

 

Science

Properties and changes of materials:

  • Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets
  • Understand that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
  • Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating
  • Give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic
  • Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes
  • Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate soda

Recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classifications keys, tables, scatter graphs, bar and line graphs.

English

In English we are focusing on the text:

 

The Highway Man, The Explorer and The Children of the Mines

 

We will be focusing on poetry, descriptive writing, the structure of diary entries and descriptive writing.  

 

We will begin by looking at 'The Highway Man', this is a  Narrative, dramatic poem.  As a class we will look at how the writer uses clues and imagery to convey the meaning of the Poem.  We will also explore how writers use language for dramatic effect.  

During the last part of this term we will look at the impact mining has had on Annesley and it's community.

Maths

Geometry

  • Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
  • know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
  • draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (°)
  • identify:
    • angles at a point and 1 whole turn (total 360°)
    • angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (total 180°)
    • other multiples of 90°
    • use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
    • between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles
  • identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

Number Fractions - (including decimals and percentage)

  • add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number
  • multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
  • read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 =   ]
  • solve problems involving number up to 3 decimal places
  • solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of   ,   ,   ,   ,   and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25.
