We're 'nuts' about learning!
Autumn Term: Invaders and Settlers
Spring Term: The Rainforest
Summer Term: Ancient Egypt
Through cross curricular and inquiry based approaches to our learning:
The children will be exploring the diversity of plant and animal life in the Rainforest.
The children will learn about the location of tropical rainforests and will be able to locate them on a map with reference to the Equator, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, as well as the hemispheres. They will be able to describe the climate of the rainforests and the impact this has. They will find out about the different layers of vegetation and the various plant and animal species that live there. They will make comparisons between these habitats and explain how species have adapted to live there. The children will discover some of the indigenous rainforest tribes and compare their lives with modern society.
We will understand the environmental impact of deforestation and explore the actions we can take to help save them.
We will also be exploring aspects of the topic through our English work.
Each term we produce a Curriculum Map that details what the children will learn.
The Curriculum Maps are designed to give as much information as possible
about what the children will be learning at school each
term so that they can be supported at home.
For our Topic Web and Newsletter please refer to the documents tab below.
Our School Council Representatives are:
Laila Kempton and Ollie Garner
However this term the children have been asked to complete a mini project on a chosen aspect of the rainforest.
They will conduct their own research and present their work in a file/folder, with illustrations, maps and pictures, as well as hand written notes.
Also remember to practise the spellings from the inside cover of your homework book.
