Welcome To Sycamore Class!

Hello and welcome to Sycamore Class. So…what’s coming this half term?

Term: Spring 1

Theme: Long, Long Ago…What can time travellers tell us?

Over this theme, we will be be working towards creating a school Museum.

Week 1 – History

  • To know when and how the Romans invaded Britain. 
  • To use artefacts to find out about Roman armour.

Week 2 – History

  • To understand the reasons why the Roman army were so successful.

Week 3 – Science

  • To identify common appliances that run on electricity.
  • To construct a simple series electrical circuit.
  • To identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery.
  • To recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit.
  • To identify and name basic parts of a circuit, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers.
  • To recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.

Week 4 – RE

  • To consider why people go on pilgrimages, using a range of exciting stimuli to find out about pilgrimages and make some connections between journeys to Varanasi for Hindus, Hajj for Muslims and pilgrimage to Lourdes, Iona or the ‘Holy Land’ for Christians, describing the motives people have for making spiritual journeys.
  • To suggest how and why belonging to a community and expressing spirituality in, for example, the memories, stories, music, rituals, emotions and experiences of pilgrimages might be valuable to Hindus, Muslims or Christians.
  • To consider a journey to a spiritual place that is taken by people who are spiritual, but not religious – e.g. to Stonehenge, to a wonderful place in the world of nature, to a place associated with their family history.

Week 5 – RE

  • To listen to and consider spiritual music in ways that enable them to discuss the meanings and impacts of the music and consider the meanings of words used in musical worship.
  • To link to the music curriculum, explore and respond thoughtfully to examples of Christian music such as Psalms, Christmas carols and songs, famous hymns…
  • To describe the impact of music on those who sing and play it.
  • To discuss and debate reasons why music matters to us and enables us to express feelings and ideas.

Week 6 – Computing

  • Data and Representation
