Term 2 Topic:
Mighty mountains rise above the morning mists, imposing and eternal.
During this half term, we’re going up in the world, visiting our forest school, thinking about hills, mountains and other upland areas, as well as noticing how the weather changes. Back in the classroom, we’ll use a range of maps, information books and websites to find out where the highest mountains are, learn how to use a compass and make 3-D mountain models. Inspired by the magnificent mountains of the world, we’ll use our maths skills to complete graphs showing heights, and investigate mountain ranges in more depth by looking at webcam and satellite images. Combining our literacy and art skills, we’ll create mini books about mountains. We’ll also examine how mountains are displayed on a map, and build a water cycle to look at changing states of matter.
At the end of the project, we’ll showcase our geography skills through creating our own maps of the locality and creating an exciting activity trail for others to follow. Finally, we’ll think about our personal ‘mountains’. What are our goals and how will we achieve them?
PSHE - Celebrating Difference
In PSHE, we will be discussing how we use our different strengths as part of a team. We will consider first impressions and how these can change over time.
