Curriculum - Autumn Term

Nature: Friend or Foe?

This term, children will be exploring and debating the above question. Starting with our exciting visit to Marwell, we will be completing a Workshop on Adaptation to habitat. We will identify the cold and hot spots of our planet and consider how animals adapt to survive. We will learn about the significance of key aspects of physical geography. The topic extends to discovering where rain comes from and comparing solids, liquids and gases. Finally, we will be creating a master piece after research into natural disasters.

Guided Reading this half term 

We will be reading The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo
