This benefits the children in the year group greatly as we prepare a creative
curriculum which delivers the skills, knowledge and creates a passion for
Over the course of the year, we will be covering a wide range of topics in
our PBL (Project Based Learning). We will be examining the notion of what
it means to be ‘heroic’ and look at historical figures who made a significant
contribution within a specific time period. We will be using our
geographical skills to study ‘rivers and coasts’ and look at the impact a river
has on its surroundings as well as the impact it has had on societies and
settlements across various historical periods. This leads nicely into learning
about Roman Britain and how life in Britain changed as a result of the
invasion and settlement of the Romans. In Science we will be looking at the
how we classify living things according to different characteristics. We will
also study animals including humans and focus on the teeth structure in
humans, states of matter to focus on the relationship between solids,
liquids and gases, sound and electricity.
This year, we are hoping to go on the following trips: ‘The River and Rowing museum in Henley and ‘The living Rain forest in Newbury’.
We look forward to working with you to support the learning of our children.
