Autumn 2- Local Study
This half term we are conducting a local study. We are using our knowledge from last half term about Spain to compare it to our locality.
In topic we are exploring the wonderful community in which we live in. What happened in history here? Where is Langold in the world?
In science we are learning about electricity. We are going to explore how circuits are made and use this knowledge to apply it to our design and technology project where we will be making something ' TOP SECRET' for Christmas!
In PE we are acquiring and developing skills in Dance. We are using a book from our author of the term- Anthony Browne.
In PSHCE were are thinking about roles and responsibilities at home and in school. In RE we are learning about why the bible is important and how we can learn from these teachings.
Year 3/4 A
This half term our topic is
'Snowflake the White Gorilla'.
We will be exploring the term 'Diversity' in PSHCE and understanding that is okay to be different. Snowflake has different colour fur to the rest of the Gorilla's in Barcelona Zoo and he sets off to find a magic witch to ask her to change his fur colour. Is he doing the right thing? or is it okay to look different?
In Science we are exploring animals including humans. We will be looking at which animals belong to which groups.
In computing we are learning about how to stay safe on the internet. We will be able to create safe passwords for our blogs. We will also know who to go to if we feel unsafe whilst using the internet.
As Snowflake lived in Barcelona Zoo we will be learning about the location of Spain in geography. Which continent is it in? Which countries border Spain? What do they do in Spain? Is it different to Langold?
In Music we will be continuing to develop our skills in Ukulele.
PE will be on Tuesdays (Year 3 Gymnastics only), Wednesdays (Whole class Basketball) and Thursdays (Year 4 Karate only). Please remember to bring your PE kits which consists of a white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and outdoor shoes.
In RE we will be looking at what makes a good leader and hearing stories about various leaders from different religions.
As you can see we have a lot of exciting things planned. Please look below for photographs of our journey.
