Welcome to Mauna Loa Class!
This year, all classes will be working under the umbrella of ‘Earth, Fire, Water and Air’ as a basis for our learning. For Term 4, the whole school is focusing on ‘Water’ and Mauna Loa Class will be looking in depth at plastic pollution in the seas.
In English, we are basing our learning on the TV Series ‘Blue Planet II’ and the ‘The Story of the Blue Planet’ by Andri Snaer Magnason’. We will be researching the problems with plastic pollution, creating information posters, writing to companies to urge them to reduce their plastic consumption and much more.
In Maths, we will be looking at converting measures and then moving on to properties of shape later in the term.
In Science, we will be learning about ‘Animals including Humans’ by looking at the circulatory system, components of blood and the importance of water in our diets. In RE, we are thinking about Salvation as part of our Understanding Christianity learning.
On this webpage I have linked some websites that can help with times tables practice, reading and more. You will also be able to find on here useful documents including spelling lists and home learning information.
We have many exciting things to look forward to this year and it will certainly be a memorable one!
Please check back throughout the year to find pictures, examples of our work and updates on any exciting news we have for you!
