Survival of the Fittest!
In Science this term, we will be learning all about which traits and characteristics we have inherited from our parents as well as how animals have adapted to survive in the harshest of environments. We will also study our Scientist of the Term ‘Charles Darwin’ and his theory of evolution.
Through our Art lessons, we will study Galapagos island animals to create Batik artwork as well as creating diptychs of our very our hybrid animals.
We will put our map skills to the test in Geography lessons as we use ordnance survey maps and symbols in our locality and beyond. We will also learn how to use a compass and 6-figure grid references.
In our English lessons, we will read ‘Lost Coty of Gold’ by Rai Aren; our novel study will enable us to continue to build on our knowledge and skills for writing for different purposes and audiences.
Maths in Spring 1 will predominantly focus on fractions, decimals and percentages before moving on to area, perimeter and measurements in Spring 2.
Later this term, we hope to host a visit workshop from the British Red Cross, who will teach us some vital first aid skills.
