Summer Term 2018
Classes 4E, 4S and 4J: Theme – Our Wonderful World!
During this term we will continue to teach our curriculum in school using a cross-curricular ‘theme’ approach where we teach skills and knowledge which are naturally linked as one section of the timetable. We refer to this as our ‘theme’ with the children, rather than identifying to them individual subject names (e.g. Geography). Each term we only link together areas which form natural linkages. This term the areas we are linking together are as follows:
- Science – classification of living things and habitats; plant life cycles
- Geography – Weather around Europe
- History – Viking life
- Art and Computing – Digital photography and collages of our world
- RE – The role of symbols to express beliefs
- Music – Crating a class orchestra
- Design Technology – Nutrition and preparing balanced meals
Our science work will be enhanced by a trip to the botanical gardens at Harlow Carr. More details will follow nearer the time.
Music is being taught as a discrete unit this term and will be based around creating a class orchestra
English and Maths continue to be taught throughout the week with the skills from these core areas utilised within our theme work as relevant.
We look forward to continuing to work with you throughout the summer term, please do come and talk to us if you have any concerns or would like more information at any time.
