This term our topic is Plymouth Pilgrims - A journey to a new land.
We will begin by looking at ourselves, our families and our own histories, the significant events in our lives so far. We will then look at the lives and history of the Plymouth Pilgrims. This will be covered in both English and History lessons.
In Maths we will be focussing on number and place value, addition and subtraction and shape, both 2D and 3D.
In Science, we will learn about our body parts and our senses.
This term our topic will be The World Around Us.
We will be looking at the weather and climate in the local area and around the world and plants and animals.
This term our topic is A Drop in the Ocean.
This term the ocean will be our focus. We will look at plastic pollution and the effect it has on our environment. This will link into our science where we will be finding out about different materials. In geography we will seek to understand geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography.
