Our Learning
Writing: In Class 5 this term we will be writing thriller and flashback stories. This will be linked with our topic question 'could you be a CSI investigator?'. The children will be looking at characters in the story as well as planning and conducting science experiments looking at forensics. 
Maths: In maths this half term we will be exploring exploring angles. Drawing and measuring angles with a protractor and also working out how to find the measurement of angles on a point. After this we will be moving onto area and perimeter.
R.E: The first part of this term Class 5 will use the story of Lazarus to explore their reactions to and the effect of the resurrection and eternal life. They will learn about the Easter Vigil and the symbols that are associated with this ceremony. The children will express their opinions about what happens after death and explore what Christians believe about
eternal life. The overarching theme in this unit is not ‘death’, but actually ‘hope’. 
Topic: Could you be a CSI investigator? 
Over the next 6 weeks Class 5 will be exploring this question. We will be conducting different science experiments looking at forensic evidence and different types of materials. The children will be creating their own science workshop, which parents will be invited to take part in, towards the end of term.
