Wild weather (Second half term)

Think about the weather, learn how to present data and make your own weather forecast to present to the class. Play shadow tag and create bar charts to record shadow length over time.

Topic

Ocean and seas (Geography including EAD)

Through a series of lively and interesting activities, the children will build their knowledge of oceans and seas around the world. They will begin to understand the different environments these represent and how they affect life on land as well as at sea. They will develop their geographical skills and build up their knowledge of food chains, exploration, and evolution.
