Cobalt Class (Year 4 and Year 5)
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great Christmas and are ready for some exciting learning in 2022.
Here is an overview of what we will be learning in terms 3 and 4, along with a knowledge organiser which contains lots of useful information.
This term, we will be focusing on the Gunpowder Plot in History; looking into the lives of all 13 plotters, as well as developing an understanding of why the plot was not successful. In English, we will be writing biographies. Together we will write Robert Catesby's (the original plotter) biography and the children will be interviewing a key member of the plot to gain information, so that they can independently write his biography! Exciting times!

Autumn term learning overview and knowledge organiser
Home learning hub!
For Term 5, this is where you will find all the tasks, video explanations and reading material you will need to access the learning for each lesson. It will be exactly the same as the work that has been put on dojo, only on here it can be grouped into folders rather than a continuous story page. Hopefully this will make it clearer to find things and also easier to find the right activity if a day is missed . The idea is, that each day new maths and English lessons will be added to the block to make sure the work is clear and easy to manage and each week the big question and resources for the afternoons will also be added, giving a clearer structure to follow - fingers crossed!
|Monday 3||Tuesday 3||Wednesday 3||Free write using the project writing pack to support|
|Spelling check on any words not sure about from the lists|
History - myths and Legends
WOW wall - can you get your work posted on the wall?
It's super tricky at the moment, being stuck at home and still having to do work! So I've had an idea - this is our 6Rs Bingo! Every time you do something on the grid, you can tick it off and feel proud of yourself! If you get a line - shout out and it's 5 dojos Anyone who manages to get a "full house" gets 20 dojos!
You can then have the chance to choose something from the dojo boxes to be sent home with your next home learning pack!
