Happy Children Inspired to Learn

Summer Term 2

 Where is the best place to live, a mountain, a volcano or an earthquake zone?



This half term, we will be exploring geography. We will be learning how mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes are formed. We will learning how to use grid references to locate different mountains and volcanoes across the world. We will be exploring different aspects of Italy and looking at the impact a volcanic eruption had on the lives in Pompeii. 


Art and DT:

This half term, we will be exploring different drawing techniques to create an awareness of light and dark, form and texture by extending a piece of artwork originally created by Van Gogh. We will also be learning about key architects and creating a drawing learning about perspective. To link with our Geography, we will be evaluating buildings built for earthquake zones.



This half term, we will be working scientifically to solve an enquiry question of 'What materials provide the best thermal insulation?'. The children will be planning, carrying out and evaluating their own enquiry. They will have to explore and decide their own variables and methods in which they will carry out their investigation.



In the unit, selection in quizzes, we will develop our knowledge of selection by revisiting how conditions can be used in programs and then learning how the If… Then… Else structure can be used to select different outcomes depending on whether a condition is true or false. We will then represent this understanding in algorithms and then by constructing programs using the Scratch programming environment. We will then use our knowledge of writing programs and using selection to control outcomes to design a quiz in response to a given task and implement it as a program.
