History, Geography & Science

Children will be learning all about the different habitats animals live within. They will learn the names and key characteristics of these habitats and what makes each one a great home for different animals. Children will be using maps, atlases and globes to locate and name the different places animals live around the world. Children will become more confident naming and locating the different continents around the globe. In science, children will learn about how animals are classified and develop their own ways of grouping animals. They will also begin to explore how certain animals are well adapted to live in a given habitat.


The Arts

Children will learn about specific artists and create their own pieces of work inspired by these. Children will be focusing particularly on developing their sculpture skills this term and researching artists that employ this technique. Children will be encouraged to reflect upon their own work and the work of others and suggest improvements. In Design Technology, children will be using a range of materials to create 3D models.


PE and Health

During PE lessons, children will be learning and improving upon a range of core skills such as throwing, catching, balancing and running. Children will develop their understanding of a range of games and simple tactics and the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercise.
