Autumn Term Overview

Timetable

This term we will be revising our map-work skills using maps and atlases. We will mark and analyse geographical differences and undertake research to find out why Giant Sequoias only grow in one place on Earth, and compare this locale with our own.

Our main topic this term will be a comparative study between Primrose Hill and Brancaster; location of our residential trip taking place 4th - 6th October.  Whilst in Brancaster we will take part in observational walks, look for differences and similarities in physical and human features, orienteer our way around an unknown area using ordnance survey map skills, including understanding symbols, keys and contour lines.  We will then use the knowledge we have gathered to design and build our own model communities and make detailed maps  

In science we will be studying forces.  We will be learning and broadening our understanding of gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction.  We will be thinking about variables and fair testing when planning and carrying out experiments.

Within RE lessons, we will be reading and discussing a variety of creation stories of different religions and cultures from around the world.  We will discuss mankind’s stewardship of the world and reflect upon the impact we have had in the past and the possible ways we could improve in the future.  In Art we will be practising our sketching and painting skills and in PE we will be focusing on improving our ball skills and gymnastics.  

 

Brancaster

I hope everyone enjoyed Brancaster! The activities were diverse and well run and the children coped amazinigly well being away from home. I hope everyone has relaxed, recuperated and had a good wash. We will bring Brancaster into our lessons for the remainder of the half-term and let the rest of the school know what a great time we had!

Here are some pictures from the trip. For the remainder of the albums, which should also be downloadable, click HERE.
