Welcome to our Spring Term
Our topics for the Spring Term are:
Climate: Why is the Weather Important? In this unit, the children are introduced to different ways of communicating geographical data, particularly through different styles of maps. They will learn to read weather and climate maps, and learn how weather and climate are generalised into world climate zones. The concept of biomes will be explored, each with distinctive climate, soil, flora, fauna and human activity.
Our World: Where on Earth are We?
In an earlier unit, the children used several different representations of the world, or parts of it, without questioning them. In this unit, they will begin to understand the Earth better as a sphere, learning to rotate it mentally in 3-D. They will explore its representation in 2-D maps, and learn about the imaginary lines used (Equator, latitude, longitude, tropics and the International Date Line) to pinpoint global locations.
PE will still take place on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child has their PE in kit in school - this will enable them to take full part in PE lessons. Earrings MUST be removed at home on these days.
Our main text for English study is Charlotte's Web, classic children's novel by E.B. White, published in 1952, with illustrations by Garth Williams. The widely read tale takes place on a farm and concerns a pig named Wilbur and his devoted friend Charlotte, the spider who manages to save his life by writing about him in her web.
