In Term 2, our topic is Europe and we will be studying the similarities and differences between Bristol and Bologna (a similarly-sized city in Italy). We will begin our topic by studying the physical and human features in Bristol and the surrounding area. We will move onto identifying the location of Bologna by using maps, images and video clips to make comparisons with Bristol. As a class, we will be producing a Google slideshow and a floor book to present our work before using Publisher to produce a holiday brochure.
In English, we will be basing our learning upon the story ‘Shackleton’s Endurance’ and producing several pieces of writing.
In art, we will be linking our learning from our English lessons to create physical features of Antarctica (based on Shackleton’s journey). We will also be producing poppy art as part of Remembrance Day.
In PE, we will be developing both our gymnastics skills through creating short sequences and our games skills through playing different striking and fielding games.
Towards the end of term in D&T, we will design and create gingerbread houses as part of our Christmas celebrations.
During Term 2, we will be attending Forest School for 2 days and a ‘Life Skills’ workshop.
Our topics are ‘Planet Earth’ and ‘Light and Electricity’.
In ‘Planet Earth’ we will be looking at some of the key geographical features of the UK, latitude and longitude, time zones and other features of maps.
In ‘Light and Electricity’ we will look at symbols and circuit diagrams, how circuits can be changed and the effects this produces e.g. in the brightness of a bulb, how light travels in straight lines (and this produces shadows) and how different materials affect the transmission of light.
As well as this, we will be looking at aspects of Islam, Invasion games in PE and the art of Miro.
We are also lucky to have sessions every Wednesday with ‘Martial Arts Matt’.
