Welcome to St Paul's
I am Mrs Heel, your class teacher. I have worked at Templars for over ten years. Here are some facts about me; I play flugel in a Brass Band, Bocking Concert Brass which my grandad founded nearly 40 years ago. I have 2 guinea pigs called Oreo and Kasper who are mischievous and absolutely love eating grass. My husband and I live in Braintree with our 2 daughters who both love art and music.
This term we will be continuing to learn about multiplication and division. We will learn more about money, statistics, length and fractions. Are lessons will continue to be focussed on discussing the maths we are doing and then applying this to the activities.
Our focus for this term will be the classic novel - Alice in Wonderland. Most of our reading and writing activities will link to this. This will also be a focus for a new and exiting project linked with The Royal Opera House.
In English we will be using fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases in our writing. We will also be learning to accurately punctuate speech using inverted commas. We will be learning about different ways of connecting paragraphs and will continue to be ambitious with our use of language. This half term we will also be learning to use and apply figurative language to our writing.
The connected curriculum is the way in which Templars Academy teaches the wider curriculum such as art, geography, PSHE and history. All skills are explicitly taught to the children and then applied to a themed project. Our theme this half term is history - Anglo-Saxons. We will be learning about where they came from and why they travelled to Briton. We will be looking at artefacts and learning about how we know about the past and how people lived before us. We will also find out out timelines and how they are used to help us order human history.
The Royal Opera House
In this unit of work we will work with the Royal Opera House and learn about the skills you need to be a set designer. We will learn how a stage is designer for different performances. We will then design a set for Alice in Wonderland and use the same techniques which are used in the theatre. The Royal Opera House have provided different films and resources to inspire the children and support them with their learning.
There will be lots of exciting experiments in science this term about animals including humans and forces/magnets and electricity. We will learn about humans and animals digestive system, teeth, skeletons, muscles and how to classify different species. When learning about forces and magnets we will discuss that we can not see a force but we know it is there because of how it acts on different things. We will also learn how to make a circuit and find out where electricity comes from.
