Welcome to Olive Class

During the Summer term, our learning question will be, 'Does the camera ever lie?'. The children will have an art focus this term in which they will learn about Peter Lik, who is a famous photographer and camera manipluation. The children have the opportunity to discuss real issues such as the modelling indusrty and how cameras are used in different ways to create stories. 

Some of the questions the children want to find out about are:

What were the inventors intentions for the camera?

Why do we say 'cheese' and 'smile' when taking photos?

Why do we need cameras when we have mirrors?

Do people pretned to be happy on photos when they're really not?

 

The children will also be working alongside a dance teacher this term to learn a dance which they will then perform to parents. Please keep a look out for the date-this is to be confirmed.

 This half term we will be continuing to focus on Explanation Texts. We will use the 'Wallace and Gromit',  to enhance learning, along with teaching the skills that are needed for the children to independently write their own explanations based upon a contraption they design.

The children will continue to learn a range of grammar skills. This half term they will focus on modal verbs, commas, adverbials and adverbs.

We will be working on perimeter and area and volume.

 The children will be learning about how to calculate the perimeter and area for a range of shapes. They will then estimate and measure volume.

 They will then be applying these skills to more complex problems.
