Context for Learning

Summer Term

 

For Summer Term we will be learning about life under the sea.

We will begin by learning and exploring aspects of marine life particularly in the Indian Ocean . The children have asked lots of questions about the oceans and are keen to find out many aspects of marine life from sea temperatures to marine habitats.  We will also be looking at how plastic pollution and over fishing is affecting the Oceans and will be comparing the Indian Ocean and more local marine life. 

      

 

          

 

       Our Christian Value for this half term is Forgiveness.

 

Forgiveness is the means by which damaged relationships are restored. It is an act of the will, motivated by love. For Christians, Jesus' death on a cross is the ultimate revelation of God's all forgiving love and his sacrifice stands as a source of inspiration to forgive others, no matter what the cost.

Seasons and Cycles - please have a look at the skills we will be covering this term.
