We have lots of exciting lessons planned this term! In history lessons we will be answering the question, ‘Were the Vikings really vicious?’ We will be analysing and interpreting a range of sources and will participate in a whole day Viking workshop! In Geography, our research question is, ‘What shapes the world under my feet?’ Our science topic is, ‘Properties and Changes of Materials’.We will identify thermal conductors and insulators, using this information to design a new lunchbox for Miss Gilmour. We will also identify materials that will dissolve . At the end of the unit, we will design, conduct and evaluate our own scientific experiments. In PE lessons, we will be developing our tactical skills through tag rugby. We will learn ways to outwit our opponents, and practise applying these in game scenarios. We will also be learning about why we stretch, and how this can help keep us physically healthy. In PSHCE lessons, we will explore factors affecting self-esteem, including photograph editing. We will see photographs being photoshopped, and discuss how seeing manipulated images might damage one’s self-esteem. We’ll also discuss ways of managing pressures to look a certain way.
