Current Topic (Autumn 2)
Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. This half term, we’ll visit a florist’s shop or a garden centre. We’ll find out how to look after plants, ask the experts questions and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write an information book about plants, follow instructions, enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write stories of our own. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own ‘planting and growing’ action rhyme. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages.
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.
