Spring Term 2020- Second Half
What a blustery half-term break! We hope you have continued to read lots of books and are ready to tell us all about them.
We have two very exciting weeks planned this term! Book Week and Science Week. During both of these weeks we will explore science and literature with environmental themes and produce some wonderful writing as well as carrying out some fun investigations!
We will continue our Ancient Egypt topic this term and will move on to looking more closely at the process of mummification. After this we will find out about the Ancient Egyptian creation story and other myths that were shared during this time. By the end of the unit we will also have explored reasons why the River Nile was so important to the Ancient Egyptians.
In maths this term we will continue with decimals and percentages then move on to converting units, using algebra and calculating perimeter, area and volume. If you need some help when explaining how to calculate at home, remember we are adding your calculation videos to this website so show your families how calculation is done at Brington.
Mrs Kennedy's group will start by writing newspaper reports then move onto writing a biography. Those pupils working with Mrs Evans will focus their writing around 'Secrets of a Sun King'.
When we come together in the afternoon our science will be finishing our topic about the Earth in Space and then exploring forces and friction.
In ICT we will use Kodu to explore algorithyms and make a range of our own games.
Mrs Johnson will be teaching you PE and PSHE on Monday afternoon and Mrs Evans will teach music and art on Tuesday afternoons this half term with RE.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and will be tested in school on the following Friday. A copy of the spellings can be found by following the links at the top of the page.
The most important thing is that you feel happy and safe in school so if you have any worries please speak to someone as we are all here to help you.
Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Evans
