In our Learning Challenge this term the children will be asked ‘Will you ever see the water you drink again?’ We will look at the water cycle and discuss how rain water forms. The children will be given the chance to understand why water is a necessity.
In science we will study Evolution and Inheritance. The children will be able to find out if we have always looked like this and will discuss the characteristics that offspring have inherited from their parents. This will be linked to our art work where the children will be asked to produce detailed drawing of themselves.
Our Learning Challenge this term is the topic of slavery. The children will be asked ‘Should the world be ashamed of slavery?’ We will look at how it affects people both past and present. Our English and art will also be linked to the topic. Once we have studied the sculptures of artist Henry Moore, the children will depict their ideas of slavery in clay.
In science we will study the circulatory system. The children will learn about the blood, heart and lungs and consider how they all work together. At the end of this Learning Challenge the children will present their knowledge in groups to the rest of the class.
We will also tackle circuits in science. The children will be able to use symbols within diagrams and state which circuits will work effectively. They will then look more closely at variables and how they can adjust different components within a range of circuits.
