During the first week of term, we will be immersing ourselves in all things science, technology, engineering and maths, focussing on the moon landings. For inspiration, have an explore of the National Space Centre website https://spacecentre.co.uk/ or check out the incredible
videos from astronauts onboard the ISS, especially Chris Hadfield, Tim Peake, Samantha Cristoforetti and Karen Nyberg.
This term's topic is all about the Mediterranean. We will be finding out about climate and doing lots of work about weather, including weather reports, weather poetry and listening to music inspired by the weather. Check back here throughout the term to see more of what we have been doing!
We will be learning to talk about the weather in French. The BBC website has lots of helpful info:
Swimming starts this term and takes place every Thursday. Outdoor games will be on a Wednesday.
SPRING TERM TOPIC ONE
Can you feel the force?
This topic is based on the science focus of forces and magnets and a geographical focus on the Mediterranean including volcanoes. We will be reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes in our English lessons and writing weather reports. We will be finding out about the weather and climate in the Mediterranean and looking at map work and life in a Mediterranean country For the first homework project, we will asking you to create your very own robots! Later in the term having researched volcanoes and Pompeii we would love to listen to a poem that you have written on the topic.
