In Term 2, 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 Mini-beasts as well as the Beach and sea.
Year 1 are learning about 'Famous People'- 'What toys did children use to play with?'
Year 2 are learning about 'Under the Sea'- 'How do we know about the great fire of London?'
Year 3 are learning about Heroes- 'What makes a super hero?'
Year 4 are learning about Egypt- 'Why are there pyramids in Ancient Egypt?'
Year 5 are learning about Ancient Greece- 'What did the Ancient Greeks do for Us?'
Year 6 are learning about a less economically developed country- India- '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.
