Topics being studied throughout the year:

Passport to the World

We will spend the first half term focusing on the UK and Europe, focusing on physical and human features and how humans may affect the environment.

In the second half term, we will learn about areas of the world that are in the news and some of the global issues that affect the environment and people living in those areas.

Throughout the topic, the children will learn to identify where places are on a world map.

Stone Age to Iron Age

In the Spring term, we investigate what life was like, and how it changed, during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.  We particularly focus on the difference between hunter gatherers and farmers and debate which lifestyle was best.  We hope to visit Flag Fen.

The Maya

In the Summer term, we learn about the Maya Civilisation from Central America.  We focus on various aspects of their life such as their number system, calendar, religion, food, trade etc.

 

Class points

These are collected for good behaviour or good teamwork as a whole class.  Once the class has collected 100 points, they will receive a reward that they have all voted for.  This may be rewards such as a trip to the park or a ‘come in your pyjamas’ day.
