Welcome to Rhinos

Year 4 and Year 5

Term 3

Where would you build a city?

 

Rhinos will be using geographical enquiry to research some of Europe's famous cities. We will be answering the question 'where would you build a city?' by firstly developing, planning and evaluating the similarities and physical differences between cities and villages.

Dear parents and guardians, 

 

Rhinos class and I would greatly appreciate having an extra pair of ears once a week! If you are willing to come and listen to some of our fantastic readers on a weekly basis and have a DBS check please would you contact Mrs Roberts at reception or myself. 

 

If you do not have a DBS check but would be interested, then please speak to Mrs Roberts. 

 

Thank you in advance,

Our focus text in English this term is 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver. We will be looking in-depth at the text and exploring the story structure and specific extracts to extend our own learning and apply this in our writing.                                                      

 

Term 2 

 

Our overall curriculum topic for this term is ‘Why should gun powder, treason and plot never be forgotten?’ This will be an exciting History topic where the children can build upon their previous learning and delve into the restoration following the armed conflicts and political machinations that took place between Parliamentarians and Royalists! 

Prepare yourself Rhinos for a Parliamentary debate that will go live to our class page!

A message from Miss Swann...

A massive well done to each and every Rhino, you were all spectacular and have made me very proud.

Water colour experts. Here we are painting our water colour pictures at the end of our RE topic: What is the Trinity. We have painted our own representations if the baptism of Jesus. We were so proud of our work, we invited Mr Bartlett to view our compositions.

We are gymnasts! Take a look at how we work together to counterbalance and our progress so far.

In Rhinos, we LOVE to read! Here are some of the books we have chosen from our school library to read in our own time.

Term 1

Our topic this term will be ‘Were the Anglo Saxons really smashing?’ This will be an exciting History topic where the children can find out who the famous Anglo Saxons were and delve into the shocking rules and behaviours of that time!

Bloodhound SSC : The fastest car in the world? We recently read a news article about this car. THE BLOODHOUND SSC had its first big test drive on its quest to become the fastest car in the world. This news report was fascinating to read.
