Term 4 Summary

In geography this term, we will be investigating the Alps and focusing in particular on the city of Innsbruck.  We will locate the Alps on a world map and identify and label the eight countries they spread through. We will research and describe the physical and human features of Innsbruck and compare these with the human and physical features in our local area.  In order to do this, we will be using a variety of fieldwork techniques including completing a questionnaire, mapping routes and recording findings as sketches or photographs.  Finally, we will be considering what life is like in the Alps.

Our Science focus for term 4 is “The Circle of Life”.  We will be investigating life cycles of plants, mammals, reptiles, birds, fish and insects and consider the differences and similarities between them.  In doing so, we will learn about the characteristics of different stages of the human life cycle from foetus to old-age.  We will investigate the intriguing life-cycles of insects and explore the process of metamorphosis – both complete and incomplete.  We will also be revising the lifecycle of a flowering plant and focus on the following stages – pollination, fertilisation, seed production and seed dispersal.

In art, we will investigate the art of American artist, Georgia O’Keefe.  We will explore her intricate studies of flowers and use these as stimuli for our own pictures.  In doing so, we will develop our sketching skills (collecting ideas from still life) and improve our ability to use and mix watercolours.  We will also be given the chance to use wax-relief in our finished piece.  Georgia O’Keefe is also well known for her studies of skulls that she discovered in the desert around her home.  We will learn how to use shading techniques to draw our own cow skulls.

In indoor PE we will learn yoga techniques with our Enrichment afternoon Yoga instructor.   Weather permitting, we will continue to practise our tennis skills in outdoor PE.

Our Jigsaw theme this term is “Celebrating difference”.  Over the course of the term, we will investigate the issue of racism and its effects; name-calling and rumour spreading and bullying.  Underlying all these is the theme that we are all different and that these differences should be respected and celebrated.

Our Modern Foreign Language this term is French.  We will be learning how to order foods and drinks in a french cafe. 

Term 3 Summary

Our History topic this term is “What was life like in Tudor Times?”  We will be exploring how historians approach primary and secondary sources of evidence.  In doing so, we will be using these historical sources to make deductions about the significant Tudor figures such as Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.  We will also be analysing Tudor inventories to make deductions about the lives and attitudes of common people at this time.

In Science, our topic is  “The Earth in Space”.  We will begin by considering the Earth’s position within the planets of our Solar System.  We will explore the effect of the Earth’s rotation on day and night and the Sun’s position in the sky during the day.  We will also investigate the Moon’s orbit of the Earth over the course of a lunar month.  In doing so, we will be encouraging the children to keep a Lunar diary to record each phase of the Moon.  Finally, we will learn about the Moon’s impact on Earth.

In Art, we will be creating original art works inspired by the space-themed pictures of Peter Thorpe.  We will be investigating rocket images that appeared in 1950s and 1960s comic books and use these as inspiration to design our own rockets.  We will then investigate different methods of creating an abstract space background.

In Computing, we will learn how to write in Binary Code and how the Mars Rover sends messages back to Earth.  For Religious Education we will be exploring Sikh stories; exploring their messages and considering their relevance for today.

In Physical Education, we are lucky to have coaches from the Bristol Bears Rugby team joining us for their “Tackling Numeracy” project.  Every Thursday, the children will enjoy a 40-minute rugby-inspired Maths lesson followed by games on the playground.  We will be using our indoor PE sessions to develop our dance skills.

Term 2 Summary

Our Topic this term is Geography themed. We will be investigating the physical and human geography of Brazil and making comparisons with England.  In doing so, we will study the city of Rio de Janeiro and focus on the differences between the lives of the rich and poor.  We will also be looking at the different geographical regions of the country including: the Amazonia, Pantanal, Mata Atlantica, the Cerrado, Catinga and the Pampas.  When studying England, we will be identifying key physical features such as the major rivers, lowlands, mountains and agricultural areas.  We will also be using maps to locate major towns and cities. In doing so, we will discuss reasons for the development of some of England’s biggest cities.  Finally, we will use graphs and tables to compare the climate of regions of Brazil and England.

In art, we will be studying the artwork of Brazilian artist Romero Britto.  We will create our own artwork based on some of his most famous paintings.

As part of our PE, we will be learning gymnastics, invasion games and street dancing. 

In Design Technology, we will be designing, making and evaluating our own drawstring bags.

Term 1 Summary

Our topic this term is a comparison of The Maya and the Anglo-Saxons.It is primarily a History focus but we will also be looking at the geography of Central America.  Our key questions to be investigated are:

Who were the Mayans / Anglo-Saxons and where and when did they live?

How do we know about the Mayans / Anglo-Saxons?

How was Mayan / Anglo-Saxon society organised?

What did the Mayans / Anglo-Saxons  believe?

What was everyday life like in Mayan / Anglo-Saxons times?

Alongside our History topic, we will also be investigating how Sikhs demonstrate their commitment to their faith in Religious Education.  In PE, we will be practising tennis skills and Bollywood dance moves.  We will be singing sea shanties in Music and learning how to order breakfast in Spanish.  In computing, we are learning how to use a Jamboard to help us capture ideas in lessons.  We will also be thinking about how to communicate safely online and keeping personal details private.  We will also be looking at the environmental art work of Andy Goldsworthy and we’ll try to create our own original pieces.
