Autumn

We begin our learning journey by getting aboard ship for a Viking invasion. In this historical unit of learning, the pupils will find out where the Vikings came from, how they lived and what it would have been like to have been a Viking child.stepping back in time to the Jurassic period. After half term, we explore fossils and Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, tackling the question: ‘where did humans come from?’  

Spring

In the Spring term, the children will focus on different types of journeys. In Science, we will be examining the cycle of the red blood cell as it delivers oxygenated blood around the body. In Geography, the pupils will study the hydrological (water) cycle and present this information in a variety of ways to cater all learning needs. Through using the green screen, the children will create an explanation of how the digestive system works. Following this, we will research famous explorers.

Summer

In the summer term, the children are invited to attend a residential trip. This is a further opportunity to develop their geographical skills. The pupils will study the mysterious disappearance of the ancient civilisation of the Mayans. After half-term, the pupils will become secret agents and embark on their own spy missions. In Design Technology, the children will create their own spy gadgets whilst reading Storm Breaker, by Anthony Horowitz.
