Term 4

Our topic this term is entitled 'Whinless Wildlife'.

Where in the world do animals live and why? How do animals come to live in zoos? Are zoos a good or bad thing? As growing Geographers we will develop the geographical skills to explore and confidently talk about how they can use a range of web-mapping and satellite programmes to locate where animals in captivity come from, we will then learn about these places and consider why this might be. In Science, we will extend our knowledge of ‘Amazing Animals’ from KS1 considering nutrition and what animals need to survive – asking the question is this the same for all animals? How many bones are in the human body? Do all skeletons look the same? What are the differences? As blossoming Biologists we will explore skeletons, muscles and their purpose.


We started our creative curriculum learning with our learning lift off! We are looking the skeleton and the bones inside. The children had a bag of bones and had to try and find out which bones went where. This was hard as they hadn’t learnt the bones yet but they gave it a good go!



We started looking at our new English text ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ by Roald Dahl. They were so excited to be reading this and already know so much about it. We started our first lesson by looking at descriptive language and how we use adjectives to give more detail. The children were focusing on using their senses for their descriptions on sweets. They were able to see, smell, touch and taste the sweets.



In Maths, we have been starting to look at fractions and use the vocabulary numerator and denominator. The children were learning what unit fractions are and how these would look.
