EXCITING THINGS THE CHILDREN WILL BE LEARNING IN THE SUMMER TERM…
Our topic for this term is Ocean Explorers. We will begin the topic with Geography by naming and locating the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We will explore the physical and human features of a location in a part of a non-European country - Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya - and compare this with features of Waterbeach. In Science, we will continue to explore the seasons, we will now be looking at Spring and then after half-term, Summer. We will explore the signs of the season, what the weather is like, what clothes we wear, what changes happen with animals, what happens on a farm in spring and how these compare to the previous seasons Autumn and Winter. We will also be exploring classifying animals into different groups such as mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. We will learn why they fit into that group and what they eat.
After half-term, we will travel back to the past and look at the achievements of Amelia Earhart. In Art, we will explore the technique printing and make our own printed pictures. In DT, we will explore mechanisms and how leavers and sliders work, before making our own moving picture. In Music, we will make the most of the good weather (hopefully!) and be outside learning to sing playground games.
