Our topic for the Summer Term is

"Ocean Explorers"


Throughout the term, we are going to be working towards answering the question:

"Why is the Ocean explored so much?"

We will be doing lots of research to find out about explorers both on the surface of the Oceans as well as under the sea. We are also hoping to follow the route of Christopher Columbus,  and will be presenting all of our work in an exhibition in July.



We are starting by writing non-chronological reports about marine life. On the 16th of April, we visited the Sea Life Centre in Scarborough to help us find out more about the different creatures that live in the sea. This has helped inspire us, and we are now

'Sea Life Experts'! We will then be moving onto writing recounts linked to the expeditions of Christopher Columbus.



We have started out by working on division and finding the difference between sharing and grouping. We will then be applying this learning to fractions, looking at finding fractions of objects and amounts.



This term we are learning all about coding, and will be working towards creating our own game!


Keep checking the website to see our finished projects.
