Spring Term – Do we need to adapt and evolve?

Our learning in the Spring Term

For this Spring Term, our topic will be focused around adaptation, evolution and inheritance. Through our Science sessions, we will be looking at how different body parts function (including the digestive system) in the human body. We will be using our geography skills to help us identify different locations from around the world, using atlases and online resources. 

Through our History sessions, we will discover what happened to the Titanic and create a detailed timeline of the events. 

We will be learning about Charles Darwin and his discoveries from the Galapagos Islands. This will involve us looking at different species from the Islands and learning about his scientific discoveries. 

We will also explore the amazing Amazon Rainforest and all the wonderful creatures that live within this habitat. This will lead to us creating some fantastic pieces of artwork!

In our Maths sessions our focus is: Decimals, Percentages, Algebra and Measure. We will also be using the Spring term to revise over some of the key areas of Maths which we have covered in Key Stage Two. 

Water Bottles

All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.

PE

Our PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. On these days, we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.


Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.

Outdoor Shoes and Coats

Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.

 

Please also ensure your child has a pair of outdoor shoes as our play area is on the school field. We will be using the field as much as possible.
