Spring term 2021
Our topic this term is ‘The Environment’. We will be finding out about some environmental features and contrasting climates in a variety of locations – both in the UK and around the world. We plan to 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 in which water is used in the home. In Literacy, we will read stories and fables 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 Ox’ begins.
