Firstly, I would like to wish you all, a happy and prosperous new year and welcome you to 2020 with the exciting information on our forthcoming terms.
This is a fantastic period as the children begin a new creative curriculum topic on the theme of ‘Our Moving Earth’. This topic is always enjoyed immensely by the children, due to the fact that we explore natural disasters and then concentrate on volcanoes; where they are in the world and the effects they and other disasters have on us. Finally, at the end of the unit, the children will participate in their own explosions with the volcanoes that they make at school. This topic links to our science and the study of rocks and soils in this term and in term four, the children will study plants.
Within design technology the children will create an emergency aid box, a volcano and using mouldable materials; a body cast. This in turn, is also linked to aspects of our Religious Education teachings and PSHCE.
Please also watch this space for forthcoming information on our school trip to the Natural History Museum in London on the 28th February 2020.
