Welcome to summer term in Mousehole class!
Our topic this term is a study over time with a focus on the Shang Dynasty. The children will learn about the different experiences of people who may have lived in that time period and the social hierarchy of the culture. They will compare and contrast a variety of historical sources to form their own conclusions and questions regarding the life of people in Ancient China .
See the links below for the summer medium term plan and the topic themed Chili challenge homework. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will have their work displayed in our homework celebration area.
In our computing lessons, the children will use Discovery coding to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, test existing programs to see how they could be improved.
In RE we will be learning about the different ideas of theism, agnosticism and atheism and how we all have a different ideas that help us in our lives. We will look at what matters most to Humanists and Christians. The children will explore Christian ideas of ‘being made in the image of God’ but ‘fallen’, and Humanists saying people can be ‘good without God’ and make clear connections between Christian and Humanist ideas about being good and how people live.
Our 'Windows, mirrors and doors' spirituality sessions will be taught alongside collective worship on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Shine celebrations on Fridays.
In our PSHE lessons we will be engaging in the Scarf scheme of work called 'Being my Best', which explores themes such as Knowing the harmful effects of smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol and being able to explain the importance of food, water and oxygen, sleep and exercise for the human body to stay healthy. They will look at the basic functions of the four body systems and know they are inter-related and how to maintain good health. They will discuss the concept of community and Identify their own strengths and talents as well as being able to Identify people who are responsible for helping them stay healthy and safe.
The children’s reading records will be checked daily by an adult to make sure that they are reading regularly and that they are accumulating reads for their reading karate bands.
