Current topic (Summer 1)


Get your wellies on and let’s wade right in! This half term, we’ll visit a local river to find out what lives there, where the river is going and how fast it’s travelling. Using our creativity, we’ll write journals as river travellers and we’ll investigate the water cycle. Our descriptive river poetry will capture the movement of water, and we’ll mix watercolours to create beautiful paintings in art. Our map reading and research skills will help us to find out about world famous rivers.


Previous topic (Spring 2)


What happens when the Earth shakes? In this project, we’ll find out about the dangerous world of natural disasters and their deadly effects. This half term we’ll gather rock samples, find out about different types of rocks and sort them according to their properties. By carrying out research, we’ll investigate the Earth’s layers and the location of volcanoes, discovering what causes them to erupt. We’ll write powerful poetry inspired by our work on volcanoes. Working as archaeologists, we’ll locate Mount Vesuvius on a map and find out what it was like to live in Pompeii during the eruption. Using our model making skills, we’ll build earthquake-proof structures and test them out. We’ll also use different modelling materials to create a volcano – watch out, it’s going to blow!
