In Term 4, children at Kingfisher will begin their new learning topics. Here is a brief overview of each topic split into the different year groups:
Foundation Stage are learning about snow and ice as well as about Dinosaurs
Year 1 are learning about 'Jungles'- 'What on earth is that noise?'
Year 2 are learning about 'Food'- 'Why do we cook certain foods?'
Year 3 are learning about 'Heroes and Villains'- 'Who is your hero?'
Year 4 are learning about 'The Egyptians'- 'Why were the pyramids built in Egypt?'
Year 5 are learning about 'The Ancient Greeks'- 'What did the Ancient Greeks do for us?'
Year 6 are learning about 'a less Economically Developed Locality'- 'How might my life be different if I had been born somewhere else?'
Each learning topic is based around an enquiry question, which the children seek to answer during their topic lessons. The children are encouraged to use their literacy skills to help them learn about their topic work. This involves reading about the topic they are studying, both in books and on screen, engaging in a variety of different activities to develop their speaking and listening skills, as well as developing their writing skills in a variety of ways.
