Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

 

      

 

Our topic for this half term is 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'

 

Our Languages, Literacy and Communication will focus on re-telling the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory working on improving our sentence level work with lots of descriptive and imaginative vocabulary. 

Maths and Numeracy we will be focusing on a number of aspects to expand our knowledge and understanding. This term we will be looking at interpreting data, negative numbers and classifying and sorting shapes. 

In Science and Technology we will be investigating states of matter by means of experimenting with chocolate, the process of melting and solidifying. 

Our Humanities focus will be looking at areas of the world where cacao beans are grown as well as the production and consumption of chocolate and making comparisons. 

During Expressive Arts we will be researching the artist Quentin Blake and developing art work in his style. We will also be looking to develop our singing skills through the performance of 'Candy Man' by Sammy Davis Jr. 

There will be regular updates of the children's work on our Twitter page. 

Summer Term Planning - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

                                                                     

A learning context homework grid is available on Google Classroom and on our class page, which can be completed over the course of the term and can be found on the Severn page of our school website. Your child can choose to do as many of the tasks as they wish.  The children will be also be set weekly or fortnightly tasks to complete at home which will alternate between literacy and numeracy. The children will also have spellings to practise weekly. This might be a game or an activity that you can do together at home. 

All homework will be shared via Google classroom and uploaded on a Friday. This must be completed by the following Thursday.
