This term we are focusing on Harry Potter.


We will be learning about Harry Potter through many aspects of the curriculum. During ICT we will be planning and recording our own Harry Potter trailers. We will also be looking at how to keep safe online and how to use the Internet in an appropriate manner. In Geography we will learning about how to manage and sustain our environment in the World of Witchcraft and Wizardry. History will take a look back at crime and punishment through the ages. In Science we will be focusing on identifying and classifying animals and their life cycles - we will be creating our own Mittonwarts creatures too! We have the fantastic opportunity to visit The Harry Potter Studios in London in December and we can not wait.



Our topic for the Spring Term is Natural Disasters. We will be looking at lots of different natural disasters and how they affect the world. We will also be discussing human impact on the environment and what we can do to reduce negative effects on our planet. In Science, we will be exploring Earth and Space and looking at moon phases.


Also, this term, we will be going on our biannual residential with Y4. We are so excited to go to Devon and stay at Stone Farm from 24th - 27th March 2020. There will be a parent workshop about this residential on Thursday 13th February 2020.
