Summer: Term 2
This term our theme is 'The Natural World'. Within each area of our curriculum we will be exploring this idea and thinking about the world around us.
In Science we are going to be investigating rocks. We will be finding out about the different types of rocks and the properties they have. We will be finding out about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and investigating which types of rocks are permeable. We will also be finding out about how fossils are formed and what they teach us about the natural world!
Our Science Knowledge Organiser below will tell you a little more about what we will be learning:
In Geography we will be investigating Farm and Farming. We will be thinking about where our food comes from and what it is about the climate in these places that defines this land use.
Please take a look at our Geography Knowledge Organiser below to find out more about what we will be learning:
Our English work will be closely linked to our theme too. Through our school text 'Flotsam' by David Weisner we will be exploring the images to create descriptions and narratives about the natural world and also imagined places.
This term our we will be investigating measures including looking at mass, capacity, time and money. We will be considering how we measure these different things and comparing, ordering, adding and subtracting them. We will explore them fully using our reasoning skills to problem solve.
Our PE sessions this term will continue to be on Monday's and Wednesdays. We will be developing and improving our ball skills in scatterball and a range skills through our athletics work. Children need to attend school wearing their kit.
