Our Unit of Work ~
It's time to take a walk on the wild side!
During terms 5 and 6 we will find out all about predators - how they move, where they live and what they eat. We will also learn about prey, decomposers and consumers.
We'll investigate food chains and learn about how animals find their food.
We will compare predators that can be found in the UK with predators who live in India.
Art and DT
In Art and DT, we will look at how we can join different materials together to create different effects and our own predators!
The PE focus will be confirmed once lessons recommence.
In RE this term we will look at inspirational leaders from different religions.
Rights Respecting Schools
This term we will be working on Article 26. This states that every child has the right to benefit from social security. Governments must provide social security, including financial support and other benefits, to families in need of assistance.
