Our topic for the Autumn Term is; Extreme events.
Pupils will be taught:
During this term children will be taught about; volcanoes, extreme weather, natural disasters, earthquakes and what is beneath our feet. From the continents and oceans or the globe to tornadoes and hurricanes, there should be something to capture the imagination of every child. We will be painting our very own volcanoes in the style of Jackson Polock and creating our own extreme weather using musical instruments.
If you wish to support your child’s learning at home please encourage
your child to carry out their own research using books or the Internet.
Throughout the year we also have a number of curriculum enhancement weeks. We will keep you informed through our weekly newsletters.
The transition from the ‘infants’ into ‘juniors’ is one which should occur quite easily and we find that the children settle quite quickly into the routines and requirements which KS2 entails.
In Class 3 the children are encouraged to become much more independent and the responsibility for remembering books bags, swimming kits, reading books etc. is handed over to them.
