Our theme for Autumn Term one is Road Trip USA! This will be a geography focused unit with a focus on US states and the Iroquois tribe of Native America. Among many of the exciting opportunities, children will have the opportunity to learn about what life was like as a Native American all while completing lots of writing, reading, designing and cooking.
Our reading book focus this term will be: The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
For writing we will produce a diary entry all about our day as a Native American (based on our class visit from Kaya drums) and a postcard based on a visit to a famous USA landmark.
For the homework project this term, the children will be expected to make a 3D model of a magic cupboard just like the one from “The Indian in the Cupboard”. Below are some previous entries for this topic:
Science - The Earth and Beyond
Our topic for this half term is The Earth and Beyond. In this unit our core questions are:
RE – What do Christians learn from the Creation Story?
In this unit we will explore the creation story in Genesis. We will also look into what it means to be a steward of the Earth and how we can look after our planet. We will explore the Ten Commandments and understand why they are important to us.
