Term 5

We are looking forward to welcoming Diamond class back for the first summer term. We are looking forward to warmer weather. 

Curriculum overview

Our topic this term is 'Weather & Climate'.

Our topic will have a science and geography theme, where we explore seasons, weather and climate change. During our topic we will look at renewable energy sources and investigate the best colour for solar panels to be. We will also do some DT, which will include researching, designing, making and evaluating windmills of our own.  

Our books for the term are 'Varmints' by Helen Ward and Marc Craste & 'The Boy in the Tower' by Polly Ho-Yen. As part of our learning, we will be exploring the non-fiction genre of instructions. 

Our topics for maths will be division, weight and statistics. 

In PHSE, we will be looking at the Jigsaw topic 'Relationships'. 

Once a week in Diamond class we practice life skills by cooking Janet on a Wednesday. She will also be teaching our netball topic for PE. 

Each Thursday, we practice more of our life skills in Talentino. This term we hope to get back into the garden and plant some flowers. We are also taking part in the Thornbury in Bloom Potato Growing competition.
