Welcome back to Term 5!
Last term our theme was 'Out of this World!'
This term, we are looking closer to home.
Our theme is
Our Wonderful World!
What a busy, fun packed term we have ahead of us!
In Geography, we will continue to investigate the World's oceans and continents before moving on to compare Rutland to a contrasting locality. We will locate the country of Zambia, explore its human and physical features and then compare life in our Rutland village with that of a Zambian village.
In Art and DT, we will be looking at houses around the world. We will be exploring different ways of mark making and using this to create collages of homes around the world. We will then move on to investigating different ways of making free standing structures.
In Science, we will be taking a closer look at natural world. We will be observing the life cycle of a butterfly and investigating the conditions seeds need to grow into healthy plants.
In PSHE, we will be thinking about keeping safe and managing risk both indoors and outdoors.
In RE, our theme is 'Belief in the World: How should we care for the World and others and why does it matter?' We will be thinking about what Christian, Jewish and non-religious people believe about caring for others and our world.
In English, we will investigating the features of instructional writing before going on to write our own instructions for making a bird feeder.
In Maths, we will complete our unit on fractions before moving on to thinking about how we describe position and direction. As we move toward the end of term we will be doing lots of measuring when we learn about length and height. This will be very useful as we monitor the growth of our plants!
