Watch our Tempest monologues here.

Literacy

We are going to be studying ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare. We will be writing:

  • A ‘How To’ instructional guide on how to cast spells
  • A soliloquy from the perspective of a main character
  • A balanced argument on the moral side to the story.

In Spag, we will focus on identifying word classes (nouns, verbs etc), sentence formation and spelling patterns.

Science

Our topic is light. We will be investigating:

  • How shadows are created
  • How light travels through and around objects
  • How light reflects and creates angles

Maths

We are going to be focusing upon:

  • Place value of numbers up to 10,000,000
  • Using the 4 operations (+ - x /) using a range of written and mental strategies
  • Solving multi-step word problems

Computing

We will be learning how to use Google documents to collaborate on our work. In addition, we will be exploring how to assess each other's work, encourage our partners and work as a team. We will be creating a website to show off our work as well.
