Our year ahead:
Autumn Term - We’ll be investigating World War II with our ‘Lest We Forget’ topic. We will kick off with a visit to Flambards to have a tour by an Air Raid Patrol warden through their life-like Blitz experience, then to Trengwainton Gardens to see an air raid shelter as well as their Dig for Victory walled garden. We shall be considering the viewpoints of evacuees through reading our whole class book, 'Goodnight Mister Tom'. Throughout our topic, we will be learning about life on the homefront and how this helped the British war efforts. In science, we will be exploring how light travels by making periscopes to spot the enemy as well as testing blackout materials suitable for life during The Blitz. In maths, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division shall set up our basis for success for the rest of the year.
Spring Term - This term we’ll be “jetting off” to China! We will learn about the famous dynasties and power of the nation. We will learn the Chinese New Year making comparisons to our own. We shall also investigate traditional Chinese vases by designing and making our very own out of clay. In maths, we shall be comparing Chinese numbers and have a go at traditional writing. We shall also be continuing our learning with multiplication and division along with learning about perimeter, area and fractions. We will be learning about traditional food and will have the opportunity to visit a Chinese restaurant. We’ll also discover the technological advances made by China and delve deeper into the world of coding. We will learn about the differences in Chinese settlements across the country to understand how Chinese people live as well as all the geographical features of it's place in the world. Throughout this adventure, we’ll also read The Magic Paintbrush and delve into the world of Kung Fu Panda.
