Spring 1 - Journeys

The children will build upon their knowledge of the past by learning about transport and how it has changed over the years. This topic will start with a trip to Coventry Transport Museum where the children will see a wide variety of transport and will be encouraged to observe and describe how bikes and cars in particular have changed over time. They will extend their vocabulary and will be able to describe key features of different vehicles. Children will build on their understanding of timelines and will learn to use the vocabulary past, present, distant past and near past accurately. Alongside this, the children will study another key significant person, Amelia Earhart. They will explore why she is famous, the challenge she set for herself, and consider if they set goals and dreams for themselves. Children will consider the way wheels and axels work and will have observed different varieties at the museum. This work will lead to them designing their own car and then making it out of cardboard and cutting and creating real wheels and axels. They will also use percussion instruments to compose a piece of music describing a journey, using the instruments to create a vivid picture in the imagination.


Spring 2 - Weather Watchers

Weather is all around us all of the time! In this topic, the children will learn about different weather types and will explore how they can become weather watchers, both observing and creating their own ways to measure different weather types. They will use maths for the both the measuring of shadows and for the volume of rainfall collected. They will develop their ICT skills by creating a weather blog on the school website. Children will consider how the weather affects what we wear and the activities we do. Children will consider the seasons in the UK and typical weather associated with each season. They will compare the weather in the UK with weather in a hot climate and the weather in a cold climate. Children will make their own weather instruments and will use these to create different types of weather soundscapes. They will investigate what other children in the school know and how they feel about the weather through questions and interviews. The topic will end with children creating their own videoed weather report in groups showcasing all their learning about the topic.
