We will start spring term with the learning challenge “May the force be with you!” We will identify push and pull forces, sort magnetic and non-magnetic materials and investigate the strength of different magnets.
We will then explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt. We will find out about Pharaohs, pyramids, the river Nile, mummies and Gods/Goddesses. Egyptian homes will be looked at along with their foods and lifestyles. We will compare the climate in Egypt to the UK and learn the names of the continents and seas.
Towards the end of the term we will be looking at what plants are growing around us by exploring the school grounds.
Our Learning Challenge this term focuses on the question ‘Who Came First?’ As historians, we will be exploring the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. We will be experiencing life as it was in the Stone Age using the outdoors and the natural resources that surround us.
As scientists, we will be investigating rocks and soils. We will be researching and exploring what our Earth is made up of and how it impacts on life! We will work scientifically to investigate the properties of rocks and soil to help us understand more about them.
