This term we will be writing for a range of purposes such as to inform, entertain, instruct and recount. We will begin the term by consolidating skills covered in previous topics before moving onto our own which include Scaredy Squirrel, George’s marvellous medicine and Harry potter.
Our focus for the first part of this term is consolidating the children’s previous learning. We will then cover the following topics
Our first science topic this year is rocks and soils. In this unit, children will discover the different types of rocks and how they are formed. Children will compare and group rocks based on appearance and simple properties. They will learn how fossils are formed and learn about the contribution of Mary Anning to the field of palaeontology. Children will understand how soil is formed and then investigate the permeability of different types of soil.
Through our first history topic the children will learn about how the Stone Age to Bronze Age period impacted on life in Britain. They will learn about how early man survived in a harsh environment, why Skara Brae was important for understanding life in the Stone Age, how copper mining was crucial to the Bronze Age and why Stonehenge was built. Children will also learn about why Iron Age people developed hillforts and how important Druids were in Iron Age Britain.
Computing - eSafety
Within this topic, children will explore the concept of belonging and express a personal response. We will then compare our own experiences to those of Buddhists and Muslims.
We will begin the year with colour mixing, self-portraits and observational still life drawing.
