Topic Learning Project - Spring 1 2019

Autumn 1 - Our world - The Environment

The big idea

Our world is where we live – our home, our family, our school. It is the places that we go,the people that we meet, the things that we can see, smell, hear, taste and touch. Our world is important, because we share it with lots of other living things. We need to treat our world with respect – to ensure that it is well looked after – so that every person, animal and plant can live healthily and enjoy it.

Spring 1 & 2 - Buildings

The big idea

There are structures around us all the time, some of which we barely notice. What are they made from? What is their purpose? What do you notice about their shapes? What can be done to make them stronger? Through this unit you will become builders and discover the secrets to holding up bridges and skyscrapers.

Summer 1 & 2 - Time Detectives

The big idea

Would you like to be a detective? A time detective who goes in search of evidence from the past? Evidence that tells you where people lived, what people did and what happened to them? Detectives need clues – our clues are going to be old objects and treasures from the past!
