Our topics for Spring term are ‘Sound’ and ‘Rocks’.

This ‘Sound’ unit will teach the children about how vibrations cause sounds and how sounds travel, as well as how sounds can change pitch and loudness.  The children will learn about how sounds are made, carrying out demonstrations of vibrations, and completing a sound survey of their school/home. The children will work in a hands-on way to explore pitch, and will use their understanding of how high and low sounds are made to create  their own set of pan pipes. They will have the opportunity to make a string telephone, and will use this to investigate how sounds change over distance  and through different materials. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate the best material for soundproofing, in the context  of making a music studio quieter. Finally, they will demonstrate their learning from the whole unit by designing and creating their own musical instrument  that will play high, low, loud and quiet sounds. 

In our Rocks topic, children will discover the different types of rocks and how they are formed. Children will compare and group rocks based on  appearance and simple properties. They will learn how fossils are formed and learn about the contribution of Mary Anning to the field of  paleontology. Children will understand how soil is formed and then investigate the permeability of different types of soil.

Volcano Erupting With Lava - Free Clip Art | Free clip art, Clip art, Green crafts for kids
Spring term will be driven through our Geography topic of Volcanoes. This topic will teach the children about the destructive powers of nature.Through discussion and practical tasks, the children will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment. We will look at maps and atlases to locate some of the World’s most famous volcanoes. The children will learn how volcanoes are formed, what different types of volcanoes exist and what causes them to erupt. We will look at the famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius and use this study to explore how volcanoes can impact on people’s lives. We will then look at the pros and cons of living near a volcano.
Our topics for Spring term are Journeys, Listening and Sharing and Giving All.
