Please ensure that you learn all of your times tables on a regular basis and test yourself at home.


English this half term will see us exploring our core text, ‘The Life of Pi: a story about a young boy who is moving countries with his family and their many animals when an awful storm comes and he is thrown overboard. How will he survive?

We will also write an exciting commentary, describing the seconds in the story where the boy, Pi, feeds a wild tiger for the first time. 

Later on in the term, we will be writing predictive chapters, following on from Pi being thrown overboard and considering if he is rescued or faces a future at sea.

In computing this half term, will be learning how to create our own vlog. We will plan, write a script for, film and edit our own vlogs using IMovie. Our vlogs will be titled: “Welcome to Alexander McLeod”.

In topic, we will be continuing to learn about the Asian Sub-Continent. We will be focusing on the food and music in the Sub-Continent, by creating our own delicious Asian-inspired meals and beautiful Asian-inspired music using the app GarageBand.

In science we will continue to learn about the human body. We will be considering the impact that our diet and exercise have on our bodies. Later in the term we will be creating adverts that promote living a healthy lifestyle. We will also be considering how the bodies of adults, who consume alcohol and drugs, can be affected in a negative way.

In PSHE, we will be continuing with our Health and Relationships Education. We will be looking at how our bodies change as we begin puberty and how to ensure we keep our bodies clean. In RE this half term, we will be learning about Christmas and considering the nativity story from the point of view of the shepherds.
