Summer Term Topic - Around the world in 80 days!

 



This terms topic is ‘Around the world in 80 days’ 

This term, we will be learning about the great explorers Scott and Amundsen and their race to the South pole in History. We will be discussing the similarities and differences in the real life events to our story of the week 'The great explorer'. In Geography we will be looking at the different continents and oceans that make up our world.  In Art we will be looking at Aboriginal Art and use this to tell our story of Handas surprise. We will off to France in our DT topic where we will be making our own healthy crepes for 'The very hungry caterpillar' to try. We will also be using apps in computing to create a postcard from somewhere around the world to send The light house keeper in 'The lighthouse keepers lunch'. 

 

Our PSHE topics are ‘Relationships’ and ‘Changing Me’. We will be using these lessons to learn about explore what makes a good friend and how we can solve any issues that arise within friendships. We will also be looking at how we change as we grow from a baby to a grown up. Books we intend to link to this topic our 'Mister Seahorse' and 'Giraffes can't dance'

 

Our RE topics will focus on religious artefacts and stories from The Bible. Children will have the chance to understand the significance that different artefacts have to Christians and also the importance of the story of 'Noahs Ark'. Science will focus on different materials and the seasons. We plan to link this to our topic with the stories 'A planet full of plastic' and 'The Tiny Seed'.

 

I cannot wait to get stuck into another fun packed term will you all!

PE days are on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please send your children into school in their PE kits that day!
