We will visit a local allotment site to observe what the local community members are growing and how the land is used. We will look at food production in the UK and around the world and get involved in some hands on growing ourselves by developing our school allotment. As well as making decisions about what veg' to grow we can also be inspired by our class book 'The Secret Garden' and grow fruit and flowers too. Let's hope the weather is kind as we will be spending plenty of time outdoors!
Term 5: In this theme we explored the human circulatory system and asked what it would take to keep a human healthy? How our circulatory systems compared to other animals? We went on a journey to find out just how amazing we really are!
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone... Come and find out about the bizarre and ecentric minds of the gallery rebels!
Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought or an idea?
We will be travelling through history looking at a range of artists from Van Gogh to Andy Warhol and everything in between. Using Van Gogh's Starry, Starry Night we will step into the picture and imagine ourselves in a different world. Come and join the adventure and become a gallery rebel.
This term we are learning all about the rainforests around the world but with a particular focus on the Amazon. We will discover just what the rainforest is like, who lives there and what is so special about the plants and animals inhabiting it too.
In science we will learn about the lifecycles of animals and plants and how they adapt to their habitats. We will revisit the water cycle and discover why the Amazon is called the lungs of the world.

Our theme for term two was: Elegant Elizabethans
Here we looked at the reign of Elizabeth I: where she came in the Tudor dynasty; how she got to be Queen,;the explorers during her reign; the discovery of the New World and a little about Shakespeare.
Journey through space, the final frontier... Navigate beyond the sun, the magnificent, blazing star at the centre of our solar system!
Investigate the eight planets-Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Take a look at the Moon, a celestial body that orbits Earth.
Programme a 'rover' to traverse a lunar landscape and work scientifically to investigate gravity... and what happens when there is none! Compare the time of day at different places on the Earth and use GPS satellite navigation systems to track hidden treasure! Get in a spin, making simple models of the solar system and listen to the haunting sounds of space-themed songs.
Then it's three, two, one...BLAST OFF! Build and launch a rocket for an important test mission.
Exploring space is probably the greatest adventure that humankind has ever undertaken. Are we alone or are there other forms of life out there?
Our Space Morning:
we spent the morning investigating different aspects of space. We found out how gravity is different on the other planets in our solar system and we discovered what it is like to be an astronaut.
