Carpe Diem - Seize the Day
Mrs Jeukens (Teacher)
Mrs Wynn (Teaching Assistant)
Mrs Logsdail (Teaching Assistant) Tuesday pm only as extra support
The topic this term is ‘To Market, To Market.’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about Oswestry as a market town. They will also explore local weather patterns as well as different climates all over the World. They will match fruit and vegetables to each content on a World map. They will also prepare questions to ask people about their memories of Oswestry markets a long time ago, such as a Grandparent. The children will create a ‘Then’ and ‘Now’ picture showing Oswestry market and will consider why Oswestry was chosen as a market place a long time ago. In Art, the children will explore the work of artists such as Giuseppe Arcimboldo and they will create a portrait of themselves using skills and techniques practised in their self-made sketchbooks. In DT, the children will explore, design, make a healthy vegetable soup and then evaluate their product. In Music, they will listen to a range of music from around the World (and sing songs linked to the topic) and will learn about the layout of an orchestra. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.
Swimming: These sessions will take place on Wednesdays.
There will be 10 swimming sessions.
PE on Friday: This term it is gymnastics in the hall. The children will need pumps or trainers just in case we have an outdoor PE session; weather permitting.
