Welcome to P5C with Miss Cruickshank
This term we will be exploring one of the most tragic events in history, the sinking of Titanic. We will be learning all about how the boat was built to be “unsinkable”, the passengers and their stories to the fateful day in April 1912.
We will be developing our literacy skills alongside this by reading “The Titanic Detective Agency”. This story tells us about real life passengers Bertha and Johan and their journey on the ship and their quest to find treasure.
We will also be learning all about newspaper articles .We will be identifying their features and becoming journalists ourselves to write about the sinking of the Titanic.
In Science we will be investigating buoyancy and conducting to explore how items float and sink.
In Maths we will be expanding our knowledge of money. We will be focusing on adding money and calculating change as well as budgeting and figuring out what we can afford. We will also be practising our times tables and division facts and learning new strategies to support our learning ✏️ Alongside this we will be developing our mental maths skills with “Daily 10” covering all the four operations and we will be challenging ourselves with problem solving.
Our P.E days this term are every second Wednesday. Please remember a waterproof jacket and warmer clothes as the days get colder! All jewellery should also be removed ☺️
