This term we will be learning the names of the continents and we will be able to find them using globes, maps and atlases. We will be learning about some of the key physical and human features of those continents. Children will learn about landmarks, climate, animals and foods found in those places. To link with this we will learn about stories from around the world. They will have opportunities to share their own understanding of places around the world, such as where they have been on holiday, where they have relatives or even places they have heard about on the news.
*** Please note that our PE Days have changed to Monday and Tuesday ****
This term we are learning about different stories which include castles, dragons and quests. The class story will be 'Dragon Stew' by Steve Smallman. The children will learn about the different parts of a castle, the people who worked in a castle, they will learn about medieval banquets and they will compare the life of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. While they would normally do a trip to Newcastle Keep, instead children will think of their own questions and be able to ask a castles expert.
