Exciting things the children will be learning in the Autumn term…
In our history and geography topics we will be looking at the history of the Fens. The children will be creating local maps and will discover and understand our unique local landscape. We will learn about how it has changed from fenland to farmland, and we will be thinking about what it was like to live here in the past. We will also look at how local farming has developed through history. Hopefully, the children’s learning will be extended to give them some hands-on experience with a visit to Wicken Fen to see fenland conservation in action in the first half of the autumn term and with a visit to the historic Denny Abbey in the second part of the autumn term. Mrs Page will compliment this topic with teaching the children some fenland music. In art, the children will be looking at using different textiles to create an image they see at Denny Abbey. In science the children will learn about fossils, rocks and soil and then during the second part of the term they will study forces. In RE, the children will look at the topics, ‘What is important for Jews about being in God’s family’ and ‘What do Christians learn from the creation story?’
