Dynamic Dynasties


Welcome back to Spring term! This term we are going to be learning all about the Shang Dynasty in China in History. This project teaches children about the history of ancient China, focusing primarily on the Shang Dynasty, and explores the lasting legacy of the first five Chinese dynasties, some of which can still be seen in the world today.


In Science, we will be learning about Space, the Solar System and its spherical bodies. They will be able to describe the movements of Earth and other planets relative to the Sun, the Moon relative to Earth and the Earth's rotation to explain day and night.


Our class text this term is 'The boy who harnassed the wind' by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. 



Welcome back to Autumn term! We have a fun and exciting year ahead of us.


Our first topic this year is all about allotments, growing and farming. Let’s grow. A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. We are going to be digging deep and putting our backs into it, making our own tubs and planters and nurturing our greens. Harvesting our crops and making soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. We will learn about farms and where food comes from, write reports on worldwide produce. Lets discover which allotments are closest to our school, and open the door to the secret garden.  After all that hard work, have your fingers gone green? We shall also be learning about the features and characteristics of land use in agricultural regions across the world, including a detailed exploration of significant environmental areas.


Our class text this term will be Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson-Burnett.
