Topic

The topic this term is called:

Mysterious Valley.

This term it is a Science and History based topic.

 

 

 

 

 

The Science focuses on materials. 

The children will:

  • compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets
  • know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
  • use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating
  • give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic
  • demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes
  • explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including change associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda

 

History

The children will learn about the Indus valley

They will understand how we construct an image of the past from a range of historical sources.

They will ask questions and construct informed choices that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of historical information.

 

In DT:

The children will design, model and construct their own carts using wheels and axles.

 

In computing:

Children will be able to build on their digital stories and will design their own comic strips to retell a narrativel

Work continues on e-safety from internet safety week in February -  to know that there are risks when accessing resources on the Internet.

 

In PSHE:

We will be considering Money in a unit called Spend or Save. Children will listen to, discuss, consider and be left in a position to make informed choices about how they can handle money as they grow to be a more independent young person.
