This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing in class this year.

This is what is happening in term 5

Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,

Our topic question this term will be ‘Have you thanked an inventor today?’. The children will be researching and discussing both historical and modern-day inventors and thinking about how their inventions affect everyday life. They will also choose inventors that they are particularly interested in and write biographies.

Our class text will be Leonora Bolt: Secret Inventor by Lucy Brandt. This is a fun children’s book that, alongside our poem ‘Hooray for Inventors’ (Nancy Vandenburg), will be used for shared reading, SPaG practice, reading comprehension and inspiration for art and DT.

Science learning will be ‘Animals Including Humans’. This compliments our inventors/inventions topic well, as during our study of teeth, we will also be researching the inventor of toothpaste.

Following on from this, we will be making ‘elephant’s toothpaste’ in DT lessons before designing our own product. We will write and present a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style pitch to promote our toothpaste and avoid being told - “YOU ARE FIRED!”

Mathematical learning this term will be decimals, money and time and a mixture of written and practical activities will, once again, provide the children with fun mathematical scaffolding.

Our school trip this term will be to The Living Land Event at the Kent Showground, Detling, Maidstone. There are lots of inventions and activities for the children to experience during this event – more details to follow shortly.

Mr Hayes will cover class teaching on Fridays again this term. PE days will stay the same, being Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school on these days.

As always, please come and see me if you have any worries or concerns or if you just want to pop in and say hello!

Kind regards,

Mrs Kennett.

Hawks Teacher.
