Spring Term 2023

The topic this term is ‘Voyages of Discovery’. The children will learn the names of six explorers (Christopher Columbus, Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Neil Armstrong, Nellie Bly and Amelia Earhart). They will learn about where the explorers came from, where they went and how they travelled. They will use a range of primary and secondary sources to find out about the main achievements of the explorers and why the journeys that these explorers made are still remembered today. The children will look at world maps to see where these explorers travelled to and they will compare the landscapes and countries explorers visited. In Music, they will listen to space-themed music and they will explore the tempo, timbre, dynamics and structure of musical  pieces. They will create their own soundscapes and begin to notate their own music. In Art the children will create a sketch book to record and explore the theme of space. They will explore ideas and will eventually design, make and evaluate a space-themed fabric tile. Our themes for computing are ‘Robot algorithms’ and ‘Pictograms’ . In design and technology, the children will evaluate ready-made puppets, investigate joining techniques, design, make and finally evaluate our own dragon puppet. In PSHE, they will be develop knowledge around three themes: physical health and mental wellbeing, growing and changing and finally keeping safe. In PE the children will be learning skills for Basketball and also learning dance creativity.
