Please read this pdf for information about our learning this term.

Spring 2: To love or not to love?

In this three week mini theme, the children have considered the importance of loving others and ourselves, including looking at disabilities.  In English, the children have studied the poem 'The Highwayman' and explored a variety of extracts from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Using this as a stimulus, the children wrote recounts and newspaper articles.  In PSHE, the children thought about respectful relationships in different contexts.  In Art, they developed their drawing skills through creating illustrations for 'The Highwayman' poem.  In Music, the children have explored a range of different love songs from through the ages, reflecting on the similarities and differences, while sharing their opinions.  In PE, the children have tried a range of inclusive sports such as Boccia and Goalball.



Spring 2:  May The Force Be With You

In this two week mini theme, the children have learnt about the effects of forces and how they can change the speed of moving objects.  In Science, they have identified the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction.  In addition to this, the children explored levers, pulleys and gears and how they are affected by forces.  Explanation texts were the focus in the English lessons, where the children applied their Science knowledge to their own Spy Gadgets.   Inspired by the short film, 'The Girl and the Robot', the children wrote explanations on how to get the robot to work, developing their knowledge of writing to explain.
