You can use this page to find out more about the topics we focus on. The page also contains a summary of what we will learn about in each topic. We hope you enjoy having a look at our page!

This term we will be looking at the topic ‘Dinosaurs'.

History, Geography and Science

In Geography, children will learn about the chronology of dinosaurs and have a chance to locate on a map where they once lived with a focus on pangea and the changes to continents. Children will have the opportunity to conduct a fossil hunt using the 4 points of a compass and use 4 figure referencing to locate places in an atlas. In History, we will investigate extinction theories using a range of historical sources and delve into the life of Mary Anning, a famous palaeontologist.

 

The Arts

In art this term, children will be focusing particularly on collage. This will include creating a dinosaur eye. In Design Technology, children will be looking at the different body shapes of dinosaurs and applying this knowledge through clay modelling.

 

PE and Healthy Lifestyles

During PE lessons this term, children will continue to develop a range of core skills through athletics, tennis and rounders. They will develop their knowledge of how to apply tactics in a competitive situation and explore the rules of different games. As part of our Healthy Lifestyles curriculum, children will learn the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercise.

 

Learning for Life

To enhance our Life Skills curriculum, children will be taking part in enterprise lessons throughout this term with the goal of creating their own product to sell at the Summer fayre. Each class will have the opportunity to develop their enterprise skills throughout the term focusing on risk taking, problem solving, team work and decision making. Children will regularly participate in debates around current news topics and will develop communication and active listening skills through these sessions.
