Curriculum

Theme

In theme this half term will find out why rivers are so important to the towns and villages that have developed on their banks. By looking at the features of rivers, and the natural and human ways that rivers change over time, we will explore the life stories of rivers. We will learn the names and locations of the major rivers of the UK and the world.

We will have experienced some of the features of a river during our Crowden River study trip and will be reflecting upon this.

 

Science

In science this half term we will be investigating ‘living things and their habitats’. To begin with, we will sort animals into groups based on their similarities and differences and will use the standard system of classification first developed by Carl Linnaeus. We will design our own ‘curious creature’ and classify it based on its characteristics. Furthermore, we will learn about micro-organisms, and conduct an investigation into the growth of mould on bread.
