This Autumn term we will be learning about the country of Australia! We will begin the theme by looking closely at where Australia is, it's landscapes, weather and famous natural and man-made landmarks. We will look at it's rich history by starting with Captain Cook and colonisation before learning about the Aboriginals. We will also take the opportunities to learn about the different animals of Australia as well as learn more about The Great Barrier Reef.
The theme chosen this term by the children will involve them looking at and focusing on history through the ages in Britain from Stone Age, including the Romans up until the Victorians. The theme has the title ‘Night at the Museum’, based on the film and book which the children are using for their literacy focus.
This term our theme is 'Grand Designs', where we will be looking closely at buildings, construction and architecture. We have already looked closely at bridges, looking at different types and investigations into bridge and tower design. The children have also been in an architects shoes, looking at different perspectives and are currently deep in the design process for building new hutches for the school guinea pigs. An exciting project ahead!
