History Learning Challenge
Our new History Learning Challenge question, which we will explore during the first half term, is: ‘What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953?’ We will be looking at her Coronation and finding out about the British Empire, as well as looking at clothes and toys from the 1950s.
Geography Learning Challenge
Following half term, our Geography learning challenge question will be; ‘Where would you prefer to live: England or Africa?’ We will find out about geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a contrasting non-European country. We will also identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world.
Science Learning Challenge
During this term our Science learning challenge is: ‘How could you be the next Jessica Ennis-Hill or Steven Gerrard?’ We will find out that animals, including humans, have offspring, which grow into adults. We will also explore and describe the basic needs of animals, including humans for survival (water, food and air). Lastly, we will describe the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amount of different types of food, and hygiene.
Scientific and mathematical skills will be developed through a range of activities when exploring the topic.
We will use ICT to research information for our topic, learn about how to send emails, and also look at programming and debugging using our BeeBots.
The children will be learning about addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, time, shape and problem solving.
