Our English work during Spring 2 will be based on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by CS Lewis. We will be using this text to support our learning by writing character and setting descriptions and a fantasy story.
Mr Burns will be teaching us about Rivers this term, and also about how the Manchester Ship Canal made Manchester great. We will find out about the rivers and mountains of the UK using atlases and maps.
During Spring Term, we will be learning about Solids, Liquids and Gases (States of Matter) and how these can be changed. We will also look at the water cycle and how this is affected by global warming. In the second half of the term, we will be learning about electricity and electrical insulators and conductors.
Mrs Bourke will be teaching us how to develop a simple educational game using Scratch. We will use blocks to create a script that will produce a question and answer game. We will then debug our game, improve it and then ask our classmates to test it.
