History, Geography and Science

Throughout the term, children will learn about a variety of natural disasters and the affects these can have on people and the environment with a specific history focus on Pompeii. They will also learn about the causes of different disasters, where they are most likely to occur and how they can be measured. In Science, our focus is rocks and soils. Children will learn about the different types of rock and how they are formed, including what happens when rock melts from a volcano.

 

The Arts

In art this term, children will be focusing particularly on using different materials. This will include recreating a volcano. In Design Technology, children will be researching what makes buildings strong and they will use this knowledge to help them make an earthquake-proof building.

 

PE and Healthy Lifestyles

During PE lessons this term, children will continue to develop a range of core skills through football and dance. They will develop their knowledge of how to apply tactics in a competitive situation and explore a variety of dance styles. 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 class business. 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.
