Current topic (Spring 2)

Tremors

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!

 

Previous topic (Spring 1)

Scrumdiddlyumptious!

We’re going to enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, sampling fantastic fruits and tantalising treats! This half term, we’ll visit a local supermarket to find out about the food sold there. We’ll bring back samples of fruits and vegetables so we can investigate them using our senses. Will we like everything we taste? We’ll try different types of bread, and maybe even bake our own. In art and design, we’ll look closely at fruits and vegetables and sketch what we can see. We’ll follow recipes and learn about foods from around the world. Our science work will focus on food groups and how food can be altered.
