  LEARNING IN ACTION

IPC

In our IPC unit this term we will be exploring the key question: Where in the world? We will be focusing our widening our geography skills, identifying different climates and geographical features of the world. We will also be examining how plants and animals have adapted to survive in different biomes and will be heading off to the Hawk Conservancy Trust to find out about how birds have adapted to different habitats.

 

RE

Throughout the year the children will be focusing on two main religions in religious education lessons - Christianity and Hinduism. They will learn about the festivals, religious practices, explore their own beliefs and discuss key questions in depth with their peers. In the first half of the autumn term we will be exploring how Hindus show commitment to their religion and how this may influence their daily life.

 

Host Country

In our host country lessons we will be learning about China. We will find out about the country, culture, art and beliefs of the Chinese people and have lots of opportunities to discuss what we learn and perhaps have time to try out some Chinese crafts or cuisine.
