This term's topic is SAFARI!
This term in topic, we are using our geography skills and going on Safari. We will be learning all about Africa focusing on Kenya and making comparisons to England. One of our learning focuses will be looking at life in Kenya, making comparisons from tribal life to life in the city. We will also be looking at the National Parks, focusing on the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya and the Lake District National Park in the UK. This will allow us to use maps and learn about the points on a compass.
Every Day Materials This term in Science, we will be investigating materials. Looking at what types of materials there are and what everyday objects are made from. They will be learning about the different properties of the materials. We will test the strength of different materials and seeing if they are waterproof or not.
We will be looking at measures in Mathematics. The children will be working with water to explore capacity and answering questions such as 'Does the taller container hold more water than the shorter container?' We will also look at measuring length using hand-spans and multi-link cubes before moving onto more formal measures in year two.
