In English we will be writing using a book as a theme before moving on to use this book to inspire newspaper and diary writing. Our chosen book is War Horse, a story about a horse named Joey who begins life working on a farm but soon is sent to the front line to help the soldiers in WW1. We look forward to all of the wonderful writing opportunities ahead of us.
Our choice of book is linked to our upcoming history topic of WW1 which we will delve into later in the term. Before taking a journey back to 1914, we will travel around the world tracing the origins of our food in geography. Does our food really just come from the shop or is there more to it? We hope to visit a farm and a farmer’s market to help us to answer this question properly.
In science we will be exploring what it means to be a scientist before investigating healthy bodies and learning to classify organisms. The best science is hands on and we will definitely be taking a hands on approach to science this term.
Along with photography in art, textiles in DT, we will have plenty of exploration in computing, PSHE and French.
We are lucky this term because we get to go swimming every Friday morning as well as having weekly PE lessons on a Thursday where we are focussing on basketball skills and partner work.
We continue to build our life skills through cooking lessons every week. This year we will alternate between learning essential cooking skills and practical cooking activities, ensuring we build the independence and practical skills we need to help in the kitchen safely and confidently.
