Autumn term 2021
Our theme for this term is 'Changes'. Working from our own experiences as well as research in books and on the internet, we will be learning about seasonal changes and weather and the impact this has on both humans and animals. Another aspect of ‘Change’ that we plan to explore is ‘change over time’ and we will find out about some of the ways in which life has changed during the lives of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. We will be looking at changes in homes, transport, food and the way in which we communicate with one another. In Science we will explore how materials can be changed, covering experiments involving freezing, melting, heating and cooling in addition to finding out about the properties of materials and how some can be recycled. In English, some students will be reading traditional tales, including those by Aesop. We will act, retell and re-sequence these familiar stories and will consider the emotions felt by the characters at different stages. Some of our Maths sessions will have a topic link and we will explore and extend individual understanding of mathematical concepts. During Black History Month in October, we will celebrate the lives, work and contributions of some famous black artists, musicians and historical figures and we will consider the impact of their achievements on the world today.
