Children will research, experiment and discover for themselves why it is important for humans to stay healthy and how we do this. We will look at how healthy eating, exercise and good hygiene are all essential. The children will be working scientifically to test and observe how germs (glitter) spread and how we can slow down this process. 

 

As our topic moves to focus on Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale, we will study the history of these amazing women and in Geography, we will learn about the continents and oceans as we learn about the journeys these women made. 

 

In D&T, using this information and our English focus on The Twits by Roald Dahl, we will use a range of materials to recreate Mr Twit. In art lessons we will study portraits of Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale and how the artist has captured the likeness of the women. 

 

The children will then have a chance to exhibit what they have learnt by turning the school hall into a museum for the afternoon.
