Our topic this half term is Potions!
Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky goo.
Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties...Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpredictable of plain tragic. Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard's Potions class. Feeling sleep? Hmmm – that orange juice did taste a little strange…
This term we will be focusing on our number knowledge. Our term starts with a recap of our place value knowledge, going into depth about our understanding of the value of digits within numbers.
Then we will move on to working on our basic operations in number problems; with a heavier focus on subtraction and multiplication.
Within this, we will be starting with using equipment to help us build our basic understanding of both subtraction and multiplication with bigger numbers, and then move onto applying this to problems.
As ever, we will be learning how to use these skills in a variety of problems which helps our reasoning skills! This will help us to use our learning in different settings.
This term we will be looking at the book ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. We will begin by reading the story and watching the film to compare the similarities and the differences between the two. We will then move on to get to know the text in more detail.
Once we are familiar with the text we will do some instructional writing based on potions. This will involve looking at the features as well as creating our own recipes.
After this, we will begin to create our own stories based on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.
Throughout the term we will be focussing on sentence level skills and ensuring our sentences are grammatically correct and engaging for the reader.
