Welcome back to another busy half term. Our topic this half term is building on our knowledge of the Antarctic. We will be focusing on the geography of the Antarctic and the effect of climate change. Through our mantle, we will become part of a research team based in the Antarctic, looking at the melting ice caps and what can be done to help.
This half term we will be investigating rocks and fossils. We will be finding out the different types of rocks and how rocks are formed. We will also be looking at how fossils are formed.
Design and Technology
Our design and technology project will be about what makes a balanced diet and looking at what a scientist in the Antarctic would need to eat.
We will continuing visiting the forest school area every other Tuesday afternoon. We will be going out in all weather, so please make sure kits include plenty of layers (Water proof coats and trousers, jogging bottoms, jumper, gloves and hat. Please no jeans, as these can be uncomfortable if they get wet) Again, make sure kits are clearly labelled.
PE will continue to be on alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please check weekly reminders on the website. It is important children bring into school the correct kit. They should have in their kit: A white or navy blue t shirt, a navy blue jumper or zip up hoodie, navy jog suit bottoms or shorts, trainers and spare socks.
We will change books once a week and children can take home a book to enjoy. Please make sure book bags are in school every day.
