Welcome to Term 3, another exciting term ahead of us and we are looking forward to knowing more, understanding more and learning more together.
Our topic for Term 3 is ‘Hola Mexico’
This will be investigated in more depth with our Geography lessons, but we will also support this topic in our other lessons.
In English, we will watch and study the film ‘Alma’ and use this to create our own scary suspense writing. Following on from this, we will look at how to write balanced arguments, using poverty in Mexico as stimulus. Lastly, we will use the iconic Mexican festival ‘Day of the Dead’ as a focus for our information writing.
In reading, we will be moving to North America and studying the novel ‘Holes’ – the story of a very unlucky boy who always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In Maths, we will continue our work on number to explore decimals, percentages, algebra and ratio. This will be supported throughout by our continued focus on times tables.
In Science, we look at Circulatory system and the role of the heart, blood and lungs in our bodies.
For Geography, we will study the North American country of Mexico and explore it’s climate, physical landscape and culture.
This will be supported by our work in Art where we explore the work of famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. We will create our own self -portraits inspired by her work.
In RE, we will explore Christian beliefs about eternity and life after death. This will link with the Mexican beliefs about the afterlife.
PE will continue to be on Wednesdays. Please ensure you are dressed appropriately for indoor and out door weather.
