Welcome to Neptune class. The class teacher is Mr Colin Taylor and the teaching assistants are Mrs Browne and Mrs Riggs.
This term we will be studying the topic, ‘The Dark Ages.’ The class will research the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings, examining their lifestyles, beliefs, laws and notable figures. The class will read the story Beowulf as well as other books covering this story which tell the story from Grendal’s point of view.
In English, the topic will be extended further with the class writing a non chronological report on Viking longboats. The class will also read stories from Scandinavia and folktales afterwards they will try to write their own versions of a traditional folktale. Whilst in Maths, we will progress the children’s learning in perimeter as well as addition and subtraction whilst applying that learning with reasoning exercises and word problems. In science, we will be studying light with the aid of an investigation from Moorgate Police who will be asking us to assist them in solving a crime!
During RE, the class will be using the new curriculum’s questions to examine their learning and access a deeper understanding of the topic. This term the children will study the question, ‘What is like to follow God’ In PE, indoor games will be led by Mrs Hays and Ms Massie. Outdoor learning will focus on team work and problem solving, whilst outdoor PE will be led by Mr Taylor and a P.E. Coach.
