We are now on our learning journey called ‘On the Move.’ This learning journey begins with ‘Wheelie Day’, where children will explore wheeled toys such as scooters, bikes and skate boards as part of a ‘Stunning start.’
During the learning journey children will learn about the history of transport and will be focusing on the question ‘How has transport changed our lives?’. There will be a particular focus on significant figures including George Stephenson, the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart.
As a ‘Marvellous middle’ children will be building a wheeled vehicle within a vehicle workshop. Their vehicles will be tested using the criteria used to judge ‘The Rocket’ built by George Stephenson.
For our ‘Fabulous finish’ the children will celebrate the history of transport by comparing and exploring current and past transport. We will discuss how these modes of transport have changed and why?
Along the way in English, the children will be using the traditional tale of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ to decide if the troll should allow his bridge to be used as a railway track and whether the goats should allow an airport to be built on their meadow.
Within Science we will be learning to identify and sort plants. The main focus in Maths will be multiplication and division (2s, 5s and 10s) and fractions of objects and numbers. In RE children will begin to compare Christianity and Judaism and in PE the children will be developing their tennis and rounders skills.
