Current Learning

This term, our whole-school big question is 'What is our world made of?'. We also have a whole-school topic of 'explorers'. Where possible, learning in all areas of the curriculum will be centred around this question and the theme of explorers. 

 

In Sweden Class, lots of our learning will be based on the Vikings - who were skilled explorers, as well as being invaders and settlers. This will give children a greater insight into the history of our own country and of the wider world. In addition to this, science will offer a different perspective to this term's big question. We will learn about the different types of rocks and soils that our world is made of. We will also be learning about how fossils help us to learn about the different species of plants and animals that make up our world. Through Geography we will be exploring one of the continents that make up our word - South America. Finally, RE will offer us yet another way to explore our big question. Over the term we will be learning about two different religions that make up our world; these will be Buddhism and Christianity.

 

Here is some more information about what we will be covering in each area of the curriculum in Spring Term:
