Summer 1-The Great Outdoors
Have you ever wondered where chocolate comes from and how it is made? Lots of us eat chocolate every day but most of us have no idea where it comes from so this term we will be starting a new topic all about chocolate. We will be looking where cocoa beans come from and where they grow today. We will also be looking at a small area of the United Kingdom, and comparing it to where the cocoa bean is native to. We will be working scientifically to investigate if all types of chocolate melt at the same temperature. If you would like to learn more about chocolate have a look at some of the links below. We'll be doing some exciting writing based around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Spring 1 2020-Travel through time
This half term we will be learning about the Industrial Revolution and the changes that occurred in Bradford. We will be visiting Bradford Industrial Museum on Friday 31st January 2020 to learn about what conditions were like for children working in the mills. We will also take part in two different workshops to learn about how woollen fabric was produced and what Victorian classrooms were like.
We will be learning about the history and growth of Bradford during the Industrial Revolution into the city it has become today. We will understand how cloth was produced before the Industrial Revolution and the growth of the wool trade and its factories and mills. We will also learn about life in Victorian Bradford and about some of the historical buildings that can be found in Bradford today including the Wool Exchange, Bradford City Hall, Midland Hotel and St George’s Hall. We will learn about the dangerous conditions in mills and will understand what a typical working day would have been like.
After half term we will learn about the different types of transportation used at the time of the Industrial Revolution (canals, horse and cart, and steam trains) and their importance to the growth of industry. We will then compare Bradford in the past with Bradford today and will understand how transport and travel has changed. We will also learn about the changes in travel within our local area including the Wyke and Norwood Green railway station which closed in 1953 and the Spen Valley Green way
Autumn 2 2019- London's Burning
This half term our theme is London’s Burning. We will be learning about the Great Fire of London in 1666 and about how certain materials, used during the time of the Great Fire of London, helped the fire to spread. We will also find out about the lives of significant people living at the time including Samuel Pepys.
Autumn 1 2019- The Lady with the Lamp
Summer 1-The Great Outdoors
This half term we will be learning about ‘The Great Outdoors’.
Through investigations in our Green Wood and a visit to Judy Woods we will begin understand the human and physical features of our local area. We will also be identifying a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including microhabitats.
We will be using our time exploring to complete a range of other activities such as symmetrical leaf drawings and exploring the woods to find and compare things that are living, dead, and things that have never been alive such as plastic bottles and fallen leaves.
* SATs will begin the week commencing 13th May and will be completed over two weeks.
Spring 2- Travel through time
This half term we will continue our work on the Industrial Revolution. We will be focusing on the different transport used during the Victorian era, the wool process in more detail and learning about Queen Victoria.
