Our new topic for Summer 1 is:

Pirates Ahoy!

 

In this topic we will be having lots of fun!

In Science we will be learning about wonderful weather.  We will observe and describe the weather, discuss the 4 seasons and the weather during each season.  We will discuss how day length varies.  We will gather and record data to help answer questions.   

In History we will be researching famous inventors: Joseph Swan (invention of the light bulb), Alexander Graham Bell (inventor of the telephone), John Logie Bard (the television), Tim Berners-Lee (invention of the world wide web), Heath Robinson (a Victorian artist) and cracking ideas from Wallace and Gromit!

In music we will be listening with concentration and understanding to a range of high quality live and recorded music.

In P.E we will be mastering basic movements including: running, jumping and applying these in a range of activities.  We will be participating in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending.  

In computing we will be understanding the difference between live and pre-recorded broadcasts.  We will be recording our own voices and using simple broadcast tools to edit sounds and play our sounds back.    

We will continue our exciting Forest School sessions with our Forest Ranger Miss Jackson.  We will be going on a pirate adventure to Neverland, visiting the lost boys tree house and going on a hunt for missing treasure.  We will use directional language and sing pirate songs round the campfire.
