Current Topic (Spring 2)
Road Trip USA
Buckle up and put your sunglasses on – this half term we’re going on a road trip across the USA! We’ll start by ‘visiting’ the states where Native American tribes settled. We’ll use travel brochures and the internet to research New York and write postcards to family members. Using maps, we’ll locate the USA and find the names of the states. We’ll look at the amazing lights of Times Square, make circuits and create a program for a tourist trip around New York. The story, The Indian in the Cupboard, will inspire us to write diaries. We’ll explore Native American myths and write our own. After learning about their cultural significance, we’ll weave beautiful dream catchers. Looking at aerial views of natural landmarks, we’ll think about how they might have been formed. We’ll create travel brochures and make illuminated models of different landmarks. Then we’ll cook delicious dishes – would anyone like a burger?
Previous topic (Spring 1)
Mighty mountains rise above the morning mists, imposing and eternal. During this half term, we’re going up in the world, visiting a hill, upland area or moor, and noticing how the weather changes. Back in the classroom, we’ll use a range of maps, information books and websites to write a recount of our visit. We’ll find out where the highest mountains are, learn how to use a compass and make 3-D mountain models. Inspired by the magnificent mountains of the world, we’ll complete graphs showing heights, look at webcam and satellite images and create wonderful weavings. Using our literacy skills, we’ll write mountain-shaped poems and compose songs about the water cycle. We’ll also examine how mountains are displayed on a map, and build a water cycle to look at changing states of matter.
Topics covered this term: Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.
