The topic this term is ‘Animal Magic!’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about animals and zoos all over the world. They will also visit Chester zoo. They will explore climate in different places and learn that animals’ physical appearances reflects their habitat. They will learn the about the 7 continents of the world. In November, we will learn about Bonfire Night by learning about The Gunpowder Plot. In Music, they will learn songs about animals and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art they will create a sketchbook and practise using a range of media to explore animal patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Henri Rousseau, Franz Marc and Pablo Picasso. In Design Technology, the children will explore moving books and will design, make and  evaluate their book. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules. In PE, the children will have two PE sessions a week including Gymnastic, Dance and Striking and Fielding. One of these sessions will be with the PE coach.
