Our topics this term are.........
History - Why should we thank The Ancient Greeks?
In this unit, the children will look at a variety of sources
that show political, social and cultural aspects of Ancient
Greek life. They will consider the achievements and
legacy of the Ancient Greeks, and how they influenced
the world in which we live today.
Computing – Animated Stories
The unit is designed to help children in continuing to develop their skills in writing their own algorithms as well as editing and debugging existing codes. New skills are introduced to structure code and animate characters and scenes, gradually building to create a short
animated story. In these lessons we will be using the program "Scratch", which can be accessed online, see the link below;
Music – A New Year Carol
This is a six-week Unit of Work that builds on previous learning. All the learning is focused around one song from Benjamin Britten’s Friday Afternoons: A New Year Carol Other learning within the unit gives your class the opportunity to research Benjamin Britten’s life and to listen to many of his other works through links to Britten100.org and Fridayafternoonsmusic.co.uk.
Science – Healthy Bodies
In this topic children build on learning about the main body parts and internal organs (skeletal, muscular and digestive system). It considers life processes that are internal to the body, such as the circulatory system. The impact of lifestyle on bodies, particularly of humans, is also considered. Scientists are continually finding out what is good and bad for us, and their ideas do change as more research is carried out.
