Our Long term Plan showing what your child will be learning this year is here.
The first topic of the Summer term is, ‘I came, I saw, I conquered’. It has a history focus and the children will learn all about the Roman invasion of Britain and how the Roman conquest changed and impacted Britain. Linked to this History topic the children will design and create Roman mosaic tiles. In RE, the class will learn about the Jewish religious celebration of Shabbat. In PSHE, there will be discussion time given to the idea of ‘empathy’, what it feels like to be in someone’s else shoes and also the influences that people of different cultures have.
After half term the topic theme is ‘Opposites Attract’. This theme has a science bias, and the children will learn all about forces and magnets. In English we will use ‘The Iron Man’ as a text driver and stimulus for our written and story work. In DT the children will have the opportunity to design and make a magnet game. In PSHE based work the focus will be ‘changes’ and in RE we will be learning about Jewish prayers and rituals.
