Terms 5 and 6- Riotous Royals
In Terms 5 and 6 we will learn about the many Royals we have experienced in Britain over time. We will travel back in time to the time of the Tudors, learning about two of England's most successful monarchs- Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.. The children will learn all about changes to British History through these incredibly, riotous royals.
Term 4- Plastic Fantastic
This Term we are going to be using a creative curriculum approach, whereby our English Power of Reading text 'One Plastic Bag' links with all of our subjects across the curriculum. We will explore pollution around the world and think of new innovative ways to reduce plastic and litter in our school grounds. The children will experience collecting litter in our school grounds, they will sort and classify what they collect and then discuss initiatives we can promote in school to reduce the amount of rubbish found each day. The children will write job advertisements for Eco-warriors, write persuasive letters to Mrs Hall arguing the need for more frequent litter picking to take place in our school, and be proactive, respectful individuals to reduce pollution around the world.
Term 3- Home and Away
Term 3 brings more excitement, fun and of course great learning opportunities. We will explore our local area through our ‘Home and Away’ topic, comparing where we live, to the captivating, capital city of Rome. The children are keen to use their prior learning about Roman settlements to make links and deepen their understanding of Roman Britain, travelling further afield to Rome itself. We will look closely at the location of both England and Italy within Europe and use many geographical terms to explain the differences between the two countries.
Term 2 - Through the Ages Continued.
Continuing on our time travelling topic adventure, this term will take us back in time to see the Rebellious Romans in their prime. We will look closely at Roman settlements and land use across Britain and beyond. In Art and DT we will design and create Roman Mosaics and Clay pots using a range of medias. We are keen to further our knowledge and understanding of changes within British History.
Our Science topic this term will be 'Can you feel the force?' whereby we will investigate forces and magnets through hands on, exciting activities.
Term 1 - Through the Ages
This Topic will take us back in time to the Iron and Stone Ages, later moving onto the Rebellious Romans. With a heavy history link, the children will experience life in the different ages through exciting, hands on learning experiences. We will study Celtic patterns in Art, compare bronze to iron and stone in Science, create representations of Stone Henge in DT and compare the different ages through time in History and Geography. We are very excited to learn so much about key changes within British History.
