Autumn 1:  Spirit of Adventure

This topic will start with a visit from Jungle Jonathan when we will meet a range of exciting animals close-up.  Inspired by what we have seen, we will explore as scientists animal adaptions, variation in offspring and what we can learn from fossils.   Our geographical skills will be developed as we learn about features of the globe and use maps to think about some of the early explorers.  As part of our English, we will follow in the steps of David Attenborough in creating our own visual information texts about animals.  In DT, we will create and evaluate felt animals and in music we will listen to extracts from The Carnival of the Animals before composing our own music.
