Term 4 in Class 5

Welcome to term 3 in Class 5!

We have an extremely busy term ahead of us and lots to look forward to!

We have a variety of different topics to get our teeth into this term, starting off with our trip to Concorde, where we will be learning all about the history of this magnificent aircraft. We’ll also be learning about the rich history of engineering in Bristol – including the building of different aircraft, road transport, trams, weapons and even satellites! Our class trip on Wednesday 11th March will help us unravel all the history. Linked to this is our science work on FORCES, where we’ll conduct investigations to learn about friction and air resistance. We will also be learning a little bit about SPACE.

Our maths will focus mainly on preparation for the upcoming SATS tests as we revise everything that we have learnt this year, as well as a few new topics too.
