100 Outdoors


Spring 2020

In Maths and English this term, we are preparing for the Key Stage One SATS in May.

 

In Geography we are learning about China. We will be having some Chinese visitors in and using maps to identify significant landmarks.

 

After half term our History topic is British Kings and Queens. We will be learning about significant monarchs and will be inviting a visitor to share artefacts with us!

 

In ‘Creative Arts’ week our theme is Robots – please remember to bring in boxes and tubes for modelling.

 

In Science this term, we will be looking at animals, including humans.  We will be:

*Noticing that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults.

*Finding out about and describing the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air).

*Describing the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food, and hygiene.

 

After half term, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. We will be:

*Recognising whether things are alive, dead or have never lived.

*Identifying different plants and animals and recognising that they are suited to their different habitats, including micro-habitats.

*Recognising how different habitats provide for the basic needs of animals and plants.

*Understanding that animals get their food from other animals and/or from plants.

*Recognising that a food chain is made of a series of plants and animals that eat each other and shows how energy is transferred from one organism to another via food.

 

We are learning to work scientifically by:

-      Asking simple questions

-      Suggesting methods of investigation

-      Examining objects carefully

-      Setting up simple tests

-      Drawing and labelling diagrams

-      Answering questions using data
