Autumn term 2020
This term our topic is 'What Makes Beeston Brilliant?' This is primarily a geography based topic however we will be doing lots of fun art, ICT, PSHE and PE activities too.
We will begin by learning about the directions north, east, south and west and practise talking about which direction we are travelling in when moving around the school. We will examine a simple map with a key and then have a go at creating our own treasure map.
We will then discuss the differece between human geographical features and physical geographical features. We will then investigate which human features we can find in our local area, such as houses, parks and shops.
We will be discussing the different types of weather we have in Beeston too.
Spring term 2020
This term we have lots of exciting learning planned! We will begin by investigating which materials are best to make a sturdy house in science. Then, in DT we plan to make bird houses and feeders for the local wildlife out of appropriately chosen resources.
Later this term, we will be comparing and sorting animals by their physical features and diets. We will be talking about what carnivores, herbivores and omnivores are and discussing whether certain animals live in hot or cold places (or maybe even both if you are a penguin).
Autumn term 2019 - topic
This term in topic we are excited to announce we will be doing lots of art! We will be learning to use a pencil to shade in and create sketches, then using different colours to create different moods. In DT we will be making 3D Elmers from milk bottles to go on our Elmer display. Please save any plastic milk bottles you have and send them in to school with your child!
Later in the term we will be investigating our body parts in science and learning about how school has changed in the past 100 years in history. We will be sharing knowledge about the local area in geography.
Finally, as our topic, 'What makes me incredible?' is a PSHE based, we will be doing lots of work on friendship, kindness, respect and diversity.
Summer term 2019 - topic
I am very excited to teach our topic for this term, Enchanted Woodland. We will be doing lots of science and learning about the natural world. We will be talking about what conditions plants need to grow and learning to identify the different parts of a plant. Weather permitting, we are also hoping to spend some time outside and do some planting of our own!
