This term, our theme is “All Things Great and Small”! We will be learning about rivers and mountains, linking to our previous knowledge about the topographical features within the U.K. We will be building on this by exploring why rivers and mountains are key aspects of physical geography and even carrying out some fieldwork around the features of the River Meden. In science, we will be learning about animals including humans and living things and their habitats, so keep an eye out for those creepy crawlies! Throughout the term, we will be studying pilgrimages within R.E and even going on a virtual pilgrimage to immerse ourselves in our work. In Art, we are focusing on refining our textiles skills and will be creating our own fantasy setting using a range of different materials and techniques.
