Current Topic (Autumn 2)

Towers, Tunnels and Turrets

Climbing the battlements or tunnelling in the ground, there’s a whole world of adventure and fun to be found! This term, we will visit The Tower of London to explore the towers, battlements and maybe a secret tunnel or two! We’ll learn all about the different parts of a castle and describe how they have changed over time. Using a wide range of materials, we’ll build models of castles and test the strength of our structures. We’ll read ‘The Tunnel’ written by Anthony Browne and create our own mysterious stories with lots of descriptive language. Maps and photographs will help us learn about the tallest buildings and the longest tunnels in the world. We’ll find out about the amazing Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and improve our PE skills by playing attacking and defending games.

Previous topic (Autumn 1)

Street Detectives 

"Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we’re going to become street detectives! This half term, we’ll follow a route around our local streets and take pictures of the buildings, businesses and landmarks we can see. Talking to residents about the area will help us understand how the local community could be improved. We’ll learn nursery rhymes, write poetry and create persuasive adverts. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the houses and shops of today and the past. We’ll find out about the history of our school and talk to former pupils about their experiences. We’ll also study and draw maps, create a model of a local building, draw portraits of the people we have met and look at the work of urban artists."
