During this term, the children will be researching how rivers are formed and how they work. We will be using rivers throughout our Literacy work. Firstly, reviewing poems about rivers and using their influence to find vocabulary linked to rivers. We will then begin to create our own river poems as shape poems. Additionally, we will begin to write an explanation text explaining how rivers work. Finally, we will create our own stories linked to rivers.
In science we will be taking a closer look at answer some scientific questions linked to humans and their digestion and how teeth can be used to identify food chain links. In PE this term we will be learning handball and trying to perfect different forms of passing to be able to move the ball quickly to team mates. Additionally, we will be improving our hockey skills with more advanced passing and set plays.
