The topic this term is called:

Mysterious Valley.

It is a Geography and Science 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



The children will learn about rivers and valleys:

They should understand basic subject-specific vocabulary relating to human and physical geography

They will understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time




Children will be using their artistic skills to develop techniques and create pieces inspired by the topic and the work of the famous artist - Monet.


In computing:

Children will plan a branching story presentation, combined from a range of sources, organised and refined to suit purpose and audience.

In addition continuing work on e-safety -  to know that there are risks when accessing resources on the Internet.
