Term 6

Welcome to Term 6

 

This term, our topic is 'Everything Changes'.

 

Why do things change? What is the impact of change? Once something has changed, can it be undone? This term, we will consider some of the changes around us and investigate what causes them.  

We will begin the term as historians, exploring how Dover has changed over time. We will use old photos of our town and take a trip to Dover Seafront to compare the changes that have taken place, asking questions about the causes and consequences of the changes.  We will consider the impact these changes have had on our lives.  

As scientists, we will continue to investigate change by learning about solids, liquids and gases. We will explore, discuss, test and develop ideas about changing states of matter by carrying out investigations involving freezing and heating. We will work scientifically by asking questions about what we want to find out the answer to, and decide how is best to investigate a question. We will plan, carry out and record simple and fair tests, observing changes over time. We will then present our findings and draw conclusions about changes that are taking place. 

Finally, we will put our learning about changing states of matter into action, by making savoury egg muffins. We will consider the principles of a healthy diet and prepare and cook savoury muffins using different cooking techniques.
