Spring Term 2021

 

The topic this term is ‘Voyages of Discovery’ and all other work will be based around this. Children will study the famous   explorers ‘Neil Armstrong’ and ‘Christopher Columbus’. Being a Geography topic, map work will be the focus. The children will learn the World’s continents and oceans and will practise locating them on a world map and globe. They will use the four   compass points and coordinates, and the vocabulary associated with these. Children will compare our local area with a non-European country (USA). For music, we will sing, listen to and compose music linked to the topic, such as ‘Over the Oceans.’ In Art we will create a sketchbook and record ideas of ‘space’. We will use digital media  to create and explore images. In design and technology, we will evaluate ready-made puppets, investigate joining techniques, design, make and finally evaluate our own dragon puppet. ICT will be used  across the curriculum but the children will be taught how to research specific information and they will use computers to help them solve problems and manipulate/change photos.
