Science

Our topic this term will continue to be ‘Light’. In addition to this, we will use the rest of the term to recap and revisit key scientific elements linked to the Key Stage Two curriculum.


Computing

In our computing lessons, the children will be continuing to develop their coding skills using Code Studio. In addition to this, through links with other curriculum areas, they will be using programs to model, simulate and log data. The children will use the internet for research and will have opportunities to further develop their skills and understanding of spreadsheets, databases and graphs. There will be many opportunities to link aspects of the Computing Curriculum to other curriculum areas during this term.


History and Geography
We will be having a Geographical and Historical focus linked to our local area. Our overarching theme will be on how land use has evolved over time in our local area with a focus on changes since 1918.


RE
Our focus this term will continue to be on Islam.
