During Autumn Term our topic is Habitat and Heritage.
During our topic of habitat and heritage we will be exploring the environment around us. We will begin our studies in Tow Law with an emphasis on the local Wildflower Project then expand our research to familiar and unfamiliar habitats.
In science we will study the habitats of animals and find out about what they need to survive. We will focus on wild flowers and plants and how they are similar and different from one another. We will compare habitats of animals from our local environment and those that are far away.
In art we will be completing observational drawings ourselves and each other. We will also collect natural artefacts from our school grounds to use for printing.
In history we will research our local heritage. We will find out about Tow Law in the past and present and how it has changed. We will make simple timelines of historical events. We will also find out about famous people from the local area such as Charles Attwood.
In geography we will make maps and plans of our local area. We will learn about how Tow Law has developed throughout history.
In DT we will be baking and cooking from traditional recipes. We will back and decorate gingerbread men and Christmas cookies. We will bake our own bread and make a traditional North East pie.
In music we will sing traditional songs. We will begin to accompany them with tuned and un-tuned instruments.
In computing we will learn to understand simple algorithms and create simple programs. We will design a program based on our local environment.
In PE we will develop our dance skills by learning traditional dances such as country dancing. We will play team games such as skittles.
