The Americas

This term we will be learning about the lives of 'The Americas'. We will identify the countries within the continent of North and South America. In addition to this, we will explore the cultural differences between these countries. We will be learning about significant individuals who had an impact on America over the years. We will explore the life of Native Americans and Cowboys during the Wild West. During this term, we will be using artefacts, carrying out research and exploring artwork to understand America's past and present.

 

STUNNING START

We will take a walk around the local area to observe nature, plants and wildlife!

FABULOUS FINISH

We will be carrying out presentations in our classrooms to explain why and how we can help protect our local environment!

 

All Living Things

See the source image

Our Science topic in Term 5 is 'All Living Things'. We will work scientifically to explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment. We will recognise that environments can change and this sometimes can pose dangers to living things, including human impact!
