This half term our topic is 'Amazing Earth' and we will be answering the question,
'What makes our planet so amazing?'
We will be starting this second Summer Term hoping to be back at school as soon as we can!
In Literacy, we will be watching wildlife documentaries and linking to our Geography lessons to find out about the world's climate zones and the animals that live in them. We will be writing descriptions of the animals and of the places they live. We will also be exploring some of the many threats to our planet and its wildlife and writing persuasive arguments, balanced arguments and information texts about these issues. In our reading sessions we will be reading a variety of texts as well as listening to our class novel - Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo.
As part of our outdoor learning this half term, we will be assessing how wildlife friendly our school is. Once our results are in, we will be planning, designing and creating to make our school grounds a haven for wildlife.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of 'FORGIVENESS'. We will also begin to learn about the Sikh religion.
In Science we will be investigating CLASSIFICATION and learning about Carl Linnaeus and his pioneering work in the classification of organisms.
In Geography we will focus on EXTREME EARTH and explore mountains, volcanoes, earthquakes and lastly the water cycle.
In History, we will be exploring the Stone Age and investigating the course of events that caused hunter gatherers to become farmers.
