Spring 1 - The Lady and the Lamp
This half term the children will be travelling back in time and learning about the ‘Lady with the lamp’ Florence Nightingale and why she is one of the most famous women in British history. The children will explore and understand how hospitals and our lives have changed since the 1800’s.
We will be looking at the traditional fairy tale - Little Red Riding Hood creating wanted and missing posters and writing letters of thanks to someone from the story in addition to someone in the NHS or who has helped them.
In Maths we are looking at multiplication, division, fractions and time. We will be exploring our times tables and will continue with our weekly spellings. Our weekly spelling reflect the spelling rules that we are currently learning in class.
Art we are going to be exploring Pablo Picasso, using different mediums and shapes that can be used to create a final piece using cubism.
During our science and PE lessons we are going to be learning how to keep our bodies healthy. This will be linked with all areas of their learning in these and other lessons.
Autumn 2 - Let's Explore: The Rainforest.
In this half term the children will be continuing their investigation into the different climates and reaches of our Planet. Using inspirational speeches from; Greta Thunberg, David Attenborough and key note speakers at this years COP27, the children will be writing persuasive letters to other children and adults to change the way we look after our planet.
The children will be looking at fictional stories of "A Rang-Tan in my bedroom" and "Greta and the Giants" in addition to non fiction texts around the Rainforest and our planet to build their knowledge for their writing.
Autumn 1 - Lets Explore: Frozen Planet
In this first half term we will be exploring the Frozen aspects of our planet Earth. We'll be looking at Ernest Shackleton's Journey to the Antarctic and how he used our school values of 'Never give up' and 'Teamwork' to survive. Using our Geography skills we'll explore the Oceans and the Continents and to look at how the climates change. We'll explore the lives of penguins understanding how the survive in these conditions.
Launching our topic will be a message from David Attenborough asking us to think of ways we can spread a message about looking after our planet.
