Overview of Learning Adventures
This half term we will be looking at:

This will include:
Identifying 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations.
Know angles that are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles.
Draw given angles and measure them in degrees (o).
Identify angles at a point and one whole turn (360o).
Identify angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (180o).
Identify multiples of 90o.
Identify the use of properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles.
Distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles.
Position and direction – Identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed.
We will be looking at the life cycle, changes in animals and plants; and naturalists (e.g. David Attenborough).
R.E. (Come and See)
Stewardship: We will be getting a better understanding of how we care for the Earth and all of God’s creatures upon it while exploring the meaning of the stewardship of creation. This will involve looking at how we can be good stewards, what it means to be a good steward and how to care for God’s wonders.
This term our learning adventure is Amazon Adventure. The lead subject for this topic is Geography and children will be:
- Locating the world’s countries, using maps to focus on North and South America.
- Identifying the position and significance of latitude, longitude, Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, Arctic and Antarctic Circle.
We will be studying the geography of the Amazon Basin which is the region of South America drained by the Amazon River and its tributaries. As most of the region is covered by tropical rainforest (biome) they will learn about this. Children will start to learn how the future of tropical rainforests and other ecosystems is closely connected to human lives and lifestyles. They will also learn about the wider country of Brazil in which most of the Amazon rainforest is located.
This half term we will be focusing on learning key greetings, the days and months of the year, saying the date and counting up to thirty.
