Autumn Term Topic
Can Buildings Speak?
Buildings and Structures

Can buildings speak? There are structures all around us. We see many different styles of building in our local area; what do we notice about their design, their shape, what is their purpose? What can be done to make them stronger? Throughout this theme, we will build on the knowledge and skills that we developed when we watched our own school being developed. We will investigate structures around the world, their names, locations and purpose. We will explore the impact of climate on construction and design. We will develop our awareness of homes around the world and how people choose to use buildings. 

Spring Term Topic
What Is A Habitat? 
Wonders of Wildlife

All living things – plants, animals and people – have a home or somewhere to live called a ‘habitat’. It could be huge like the ocean, or small, like a leaf. It could be a forest on the other side of the world or a tree in our local area. Do you know any habitats? We will investigate habitats, flowers and insects. Have you seen flowers or insects? Where did you see them? We will learn that flowers and insects depend on each other and how to look after habitats so that animals and plants can survive. We will focus on Charles Darwin as a famous scientist and how he influenced our understanding of habitats. Internationally, we will learn about the loss of some of the world’s habitats and how this can be prevented. By the end of our topic, we will truly have explored the wonders of wildlife. 

Summer Term Topic
Where Would You Like To Go On Holiday? 
Picture Postcard

Holidays are special days when we take a rest from school and work. Our holidays in the past were very different from holidays today. Now that we can travel to all parts of the world and even space, who knows where we will go for our holidays in the future? In the modern world, travel has continued to become cheaper, particularly air travel. There are relatively few places left in the world today that are not someone’s holiday destination. As adventurous learners, we will study tourism and how it has impacted a locality, now and in the past, positively and negatively. Tourism is widely recognised as the world’s largest industry and, as with other forms of economic activity, it reflects the increasing interconnectedness of the international economy. We will discuss this how concept relates to use of the internet for holidays and become travel agents ourselves, finally designing and making our own holiday souvenirs to market.
