This project teaches children about their own school and locality, both today and in the past. They compare schooling in the Victorian era to their experiences today.
School Days - Knowledge organiser
Science - Food chains
Children will learn about food chains and role play the interdependence between creatures in a chain, considering what part each plays in its survival. They will explore the school grounds, looking for examples of simple food chains and will learn about what it means to be alive. They will also be learning about water-based food chains and reconstruct them in tanks of water.
Chop, Slice and Mash
This project teaches children about sources of food and the preparatory skills of peeling, tearing, slicing, chopping, mashing and grating. They use this knowledge and techniques to design and make a supermarket sandwich according to specific design criteria.
RE - What makes some places sacred?
Children will learn to identify objects and symbols found in a place where people worship (churches, synagogues and mosques) and will be able to say something about that they mean and how they are used. They will talk about why it is important to show respect for other people's precious or sacred belongings and will begin to notice some similarities and differences between places of worship and how they are used.
PSHE: Keeping safe
In this topic children will be taught to recognise that they share responsibility for keeping themselves and others safe. They will work in small groups to identify hazards and learn simple rules (such as Stop, Look, Listen) to help keep them safe. Children will role-play how to make a 999 call and we will use traditional stories such as 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' to reinforce the message of only ringing for help when it is really needed.
Children will be taught to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content. They will recgnise common uses of information technology beyond school and know how to safely and respectfully, keep personal information private and where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
