What will we learn about this half-term?
Week 1: 'ONCE UPON A TIME!'
WOW day! We will be making puppets, doing some drama, and art related to fairy tales.
Week 2: 'ALL ABOUT ANIMALS!'
We will be looking and learning about how animals (including humans) have offspring, as well as their basic survival needs. This will be linked to maths where we will be producing a class pictogram!
Week 3:'WHO’D LIVE IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS?'
We will be exploring materials, sorting and classifying, ready to build houses for the three little pigs! Which material will make the best house?!
Week 4: 'HOW CAN WE BUILD A STRONG BRIDGE?'
Children will be working in groups/ pairs to design, make & evaluate bridges made from various materials, and test strength by putting weights on!
Weeks 5 & 6: 'CAN WE MAKE A VEHICLE FOR A FAIRY TALE CHARACTER?'
Children will be researching vehicles i.e. how do the wheels move? How are they built to carry passengers? We will then be practising ways of joining and making wheels move with simple axles, with the final project being to design and make vehicles for fairy tale characters!
