Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

Term 5

Our topic this term is called The Natural Wonders of Wye.  It is based around the books we'll be reading in English - Animalium and Botanicum.  These books describe themselves as a museum unlike any you've visited before.  Its collection boasts an unrivalled catalogue of the world's finest and most extraordinary creatures along with the most beautiful, exotic and weird plants.  This book will inspire the children to write their own information texts about plants and animals living in the local area.


In our Geography lessons, the children will be learning about their village - Wye.  They will learn to read maps and compasses as well as creating their own maps of the village.  They will learn about use of paths and rules of the countryside as well as the history of hopping in Wye. 


In science, the children will be learning about All Living Things and Their Habitats.  The children will learn how to classify micro-organisms, plants and animals.  They will give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics.
