Our Learning
 
Writing: In our final term, Class 5 will be looking at the big questions "why is Brazil in the news again". Our writing will be focused on recounts and instructions, the children will be involved in many exciting activities across the half term in order to stimulate their writing. This includes, a trip to the beach, making a fruit salad, Brazilian drumming workshop and many other exciting activities to help us with our learning.  
 
 
Maths: This half term, we will be looking at reading line graphs and time tables. The children will be learning how to solve problems related to a range of timetables and understanding the purpose of a line graph. After this, we will be focusing our learning on solving problems based on what we know after our time in year 5.
 
R.E: To begin with we will be looking at the Pentecost story and learning about the the meaning of the words, 'oneness', 'closeness', 'change' and 'energy'. Once we have finished the Pentecost story, the children will be looking at three different faiths.
 
Topic: Why is Brazil in the news again? 
 
Over the course of our final term Class 5 will be exploring some questions related to our topic.
 
What do we already know about Brazil? What are the natural resources in Brazil? Can we find out about the cities in Brazil? What other countries surround Brazil? 
 
At the end of the half term once we have answered our big question, Class 5 will celebrate with a carnival themed day in school.
