This Half Term we are learning

This term our topic is Ancient Civilisations. This project teaches children about the history of three of the world’s first ancient civilisations: ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt and the Indus Valley civilisation. Children will learn about the rise, life, achievements and eventual end of each civilisation.  

In science we are learning about Electricity. Pupils learn that some materials allow electricity through them and others do not. They learn about the history of electricity and they make and test electrical circuits with a variety of components. They use their knowledge of electricity to design and build a model of a burglar alarm for a house. 

In computing we are learning to program using FMS Logo, a text-based programming language. Pupils will look at repetition and loops within programming. They will create planning, modifying and testing commands to create shapes and patterns. 

In PHSE we are learning about Rights and Respect.
