This term we will be looking at the topic ‘Rainforests'.
History, Geography and Science
In geography, children will learn about the key locations of the world's rainforests. Children will have the opportunity to conduct challenges using the 4 points of a compass and use 4 figure referencing to locate places in an atlas. In history, we will investigate the tribes located within specific rainforests using a range of historical sources and delve into the effects deforestation has.
In art and design technology this term, children will be focusing particularly on textiles. This will include creating a rainforest creature and building on key life skills, such as threading a needle and stitching. In music, the children will be learning to play a pitched instrument performing simple pieces of music rhythmically.
PE and Healthy Lifestyles
During PE lessons this term, the 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 the rules of the game. 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 product to sell. 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.
