Lady Joanna Thornhill (Endowed) Primary School

Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

Term 4

Our topic this term is Intrepid Exploration. In English, we will be reading Shackleton's Journey and Ice Trap!  These books tell the true story of Ernest Shackleton and his crew, who set out to cross the vast south polar continent, Antarctica.  


In art, we will be learning about the British artist, Sarah Winkler.  We will take inspiration from her artwork, and use a range of materials to create our own frozen landscapes.


In geography, the children will learn to locate and describe places using longitude and latitude; find out about the Equator, the Hemispheres, the Poles and the Tropics and learn about time zones. 


The homework grid and weekly spellings are also on this page – so keep a look out so you’re up-to-date. Please continue to hear your child read at least five times a week and sign their Reading Record Book.
