Our topic this term is Frozen Planet. We will begin the topic by researching the polar regions and looking at their geography. Making links with the science topic of evolution and adaptation will allow us to explore how life survives in such extreme conditions.

 

Next half term our focus will move to historical investigation of the race to the south pole and the trials of Robert Falcon Scott and his crew when battling the severe elements.

 

During this topic, we will be drawing on a range of non fiction texts and using, No Return: Captain Scott's Race to the Pole by Peter Gouldthorpe to stimulate creative writing opportunities. The DVD Frozen Planet - narrated by David Attenborough - will provide another key resource during our learning.

Key Information

Timetable

PE

Swallows have PE on Wednesday afternoons and all children will need to ensure they have full and correct kit in school for these sessions.

Homework

Each week, English and maths homework will be issued on a Thursday. This allows children the Friday to seek support in school if needed. Homework will then need to be returned for the following Tuesday.

Also a part of the weekly homework, is spellings, time tables and reading practice. Each of these areas is supported by a small diary-style book. Tests will take place on Tuesday mornings and new spellings and tables will be issued the same day.

 

In addition to weekly homework, topic projects will also be set over longer time periods specific to our class. These tasks will be made available for checking on our class page on the school website.

 

Friday afternoon rotations

Swallows will be undertaking art and design on Friday afternoon rotations. They won't need any extra clothing/equipment for these sessions.

 

Children will need to bring a photograph of the outside of their house for one of the art sessions later this term (letters and texts will be sent as a helpful reminder). 

Websites
