First of all Mrs Wheeler is our class teacher and Mrs Davies is our fantastic TA. The lovely Mrs Harrison and Mrs Selby work in our classroom too!
Our PE sessions are run by Mr Bedwell and other members of the Elite Youth Sports.
Read on to find out what fun things we are going to learn this term …
This term our topic will be ‘A Frozen Planet,’ and the link will be to all things polar. As you all know last term’s topic had a very heavy focus on History – both the in depth historical knowledge and relevant skills necessary to access this knowledge and therefore this term our topic will focus heavily on Geography. We are going to be learning about a range of geographical factors including using map reading and map making skills to locate the different Polar Regions, understanding the biomes they belong to and look in detail at time zones and the lines of longitude and latitude. Alongside this knowledge we will be developing our skills of understanding the 8 and 16 point compass and using ICT and other digital technologies to help us record and present our findings. In Art and D and T we are going to be developing our skills of collaging and using textiles to make a polar collage and designing and stitching a penguin respectively. In Science we are going to incorporate the unit of Material and Material Changes which investigate mixing, dissolving, heating and freezing materials.
