Welcome to the first half term of Autumn. This half term our topic is based around our “Search for America”. We will be exploring the Geography, Science, History, DT And Art work related to America.
In Literacy, we will organise facts about Western towns using a non-chronological report including key vocabulary and fronted adverbials to order our writing. We will also write our own myth based on the Native American story “Star People”.
We will explore some of the history of America through the using of cooking in DT. We will look at different preservation techniques, the impact of the slave trade and even how the simple chilli changed cooking in the south.
In RE will explore what Christians believed and how some of the original settlers lives were impacted by Christianity.
We will use our geographical knowledge to locate states of the USA, compare landscapes and American cities. We even planed our very own visit to the USA. Where would you choose to go?
In Science, we will investigate the different types of animals and plants from the Great Plains in America. We will then sort them into groups based on different criteria. We finally will use this information to create our very own food chains.
