Our topic this half term is:
This is a Design Technology led topic. We will be drawing on science knowledge and thinking about machines, using this to help us make and power a moving vehicle. This will encompass: generating ideas, disassembly, designing, making prototypes, construction, testing and evaluation. Our English text type of explanation will help us to understand how everyday things really work and help us to write with clarity. Imagination and creativity is the key to invention. Let's hope we come up with some cracking ideas!
In Science, we will be learning about gears/springs, pulleys and levers.
In RE, we will be asking the question, 'What did Jesus do to save human beings?' We will be learning about Jesus' death and resurrection through reading the accounts in the Gospels. Our focus will be on how Christians interpret these events and what they mean to a Christian today.
