Spring term 2020
Our theme for this term is ‘The Environment’. We will be finding out about the environmental features and climate in different places – both in the UK and around the world. Each week, we will focus on a particular environment. These will include both familiar and unfamiliar locations and will provide opportunities for sensory exploration as well as questioning and research. Through looking at images, books and websites, we will learn about the animals that live in different habitats and the way in which they have adapted to survive in their local environmental conditions. Weather will be a focus throughout this topic and we will learn about the water cycle and the way that water is used in the home. In Literacy, we will read stories from other cultures and those that include story-lines about the weather. During February, we will learn about Chinese New Year celebrations as the ‘Year of the Rat’ begins.
