Welcome to 2020!
What Was New About The Stone Age?
In this unit children will explore how life changed for people during different of the Stone Age, including the Early, Middle and New Stone Ages. They will cover why the period was called the Stone Age and what evidence there is from the period, particularly in the form of artefacts and monuments.
A trip to Creswell Crags will take place at the end of the half term.
Programming Turtle Logo and Scratch
This unit will teach the children to create and debug algorithms. The children use the basic commands in Logo to move and draw using the turtle on screen, and then further develop algorithms using the ‘repeat’ command. These skills are then developed by teaching the children to create algorithms in Scratch using a selection of blocks.
Stop! A Song/Rap about Bullying
We will continue to develop our musical education through listening and appraising songs from a variety of genres, learning and building on our musical knowledge and understanding about the interrelated dimensions of music through musical activities and then perform and share our learning as we progress through the unit of work.
Teeth and Eating
Children learn about digestion and different types of teeth, before moving on to explore deadly predators and their prey, in their exploration of food chains. They work scientifically throughout the topic, using enquiry, practical experiments and hands-on research to answer questions and investigate how we eat, why we eat and what we eat.
