Welcome to Willow class’ web page. This term we are have lots of different activities planned across all areas of the curriculum and are looking forward to taking part in some exciting learning activities.
Our topic in science will be sound. In these lessons we will be learning about sound sources, how sound travels and how pitch changes. The children will have an opportunity to carry out a variety of investigations to look patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it. We will be making our own simple instruments using the knowledge that we have gained through our lessons.
In design and technology, the children will be looking at Ferris wheel designs. Using our knowledge of mechanisms and structures we will design our own moving, free standing Ferris wheel models. Children will be selecting appropriate materials and using their cutting skills to assemble their models.
‘Our Wonderful World’ will be our topic in geography. In these lessons we will be looking at physical and human features and identifying examples of each in our local area and wider in the UK. We will learn about the ‘Seven Wonders of the Ancient World’ and ‘Seven Wonders of the Natural World’ and consider why they are known as ‘wonders’.
We will continue with daily maths, Read Write Inc and English sessions in which we will continue to develop our key skills.
Below you can see some examples of the exciting work we completed last term. We will make sure that we take lots more photos of our fabulous work that we want to share with you.
