Predator! - Spring 1

In this section...


We study the local area as part of our learning in this topic, where we use OS symbols and grid references to locate and plot key places. We explore the River Wandle and consider the reasons why people live close to rivers both now and in the past. Using all the information, we put together a leaflet to persuade visitors to the area.

In Science we learn about 'Plants'. We find out about the different parts and function of a plant as well as what plants need in order to grow through practical work. We learn about the plant life cycle and the importance of flowers and seed dispersal.

We use our theme of 'Predator' to develop our drawing skills to create a detailed bird drawing.

In Computing we focus on presenting to create a film clip for an audience.

Our Music genre this half term is 'Reggae and Bob Marley'.

In French we learn to ask and answer different questions and PE lessons comprise of Dance and Hockey.

RE focuses on Hinduism where we learn about what Hindus believe about God and the importance of the deities.

During this half term in PHSE we explore the theme 'Going for Goals'. We focus on setting goals and understanding how we can achieve them.
