SUMMER TERM 

 

This term, the children will be working on the topic of Vikings and Settlers.

 

In this unit, children will develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods they study by knowing who the Vikings
were and when and why they raided and invaded Britain.

 

 

We begun our topic by having a big day where we worked together to make Viking longboats.

Science 

 

In science, we will be learning about forces and magnets.  The children will compare how things move on different surfaces and notices that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.

In March, the whole school took part in Science week. 

SPRING TERM 

 

This term, the children will be working on the topic of Rainforests.

 

In this Unit, children take a closer look at the mysteries of tropical rainforests. From the layers of the forest and its animal inhabitants, to the unique climate found in the tropics.

 

They compare a British forest with the Amazon rainforest, and begin to explore some of the conservation issues surrounding the destruction of rainforest habitats.

Science 

 

In science, children will be learning about animals, including humans. 

 

They will be able to identify that animals and humans need the right types and amounts of nutrition and that they get nutrition from what they eat as they cannot produce it themselves.
