Spring Term

During the Spring term, our overarching topic will be The Tropics – a study of key regions. We will commence by locating the Tropics through our Geography learning, specifically Central and Southern America, Africa and Australia. In addition to looking at the human and physical geographical features of these areas, we will explore and debate the changing nature of this region, in relation to the impact that human ‘progress’ has had and is still having upon them. This will include the impact of the trade of natural resources upon these areas. In Art, we will be focusing on the subconscious mind – Dreams and Nightmares. We will be creating collages, which represent behaviour and emotion of the artist. The children will use colour to specify a particular mood/emotion through their collage design. Our end goal will be to tweet our designs for the community to see and appreciate. During our D&T lessons, we will be exploring culture and seasonality, through creating our very own curry, after market research and various taste tests to aim towards a particular target audience. In History, our area of study will be ‘The Struggle for Independence,’ where we will explore key countries including South Africa, Kenya and India. We will look at the lives and experiences of Nelson Mandela and Ghandi before debating whether we believe change has happened within today’s society.
