Lower KS2: Y3 (ST) Y3/4 (MC) Y4 (JJ) 2019 - 2020

Miss Townes

In the Spring Term LKS2 will be learning all about the similarities and differences between humans and animals. We will begin our topic with our launch event which will see us inviting a company into school with their incredible animals. The children will experience a hands on workshop and will learn all about different animals and how they survive.

Our first lessons concentrate on investigating what is means to be living and we will learn the mnemonic Mrs Gren to help us with this. We will learn all about the different nutrients we need and how our needs compare to that of animals.

We will then move on to learn all about the human digestive system and then comparing this to the digestive systems of different animals. We will focus on our teeth in the next series of lessons and this will contain a science experiment that looks at the effects of different substances on our teeth.  

The children will then learn about different skeletons and how they function. They will create a hand and make it move as learn about the muscles in our bodies and how they work.

We will next look at classification keys and using all our knowledge we will be grouping animals humans according to different criteria.  We will also look at the life cycles of different animals and we will spend some time exploring animal skins and reproducing them using a range of media.

Our topic will end with an exciting trip to Peak Wildlife Park where we will meet the animals and take part in talks and discussions with the park keepers.

This is such a fascinating topic and we are looking forward to teaching it. 

We will be covering strands from National Curriculum in Science and Design Technology through a cross curricula approach.  RE, Music, PE, French and Computing will be taught discretely.

In RE this term we are looking at how believers and non belivers celebrate new births. We will be comparing and contrasting infant and believers' baptism suggesting why they are important to Christians. We shall also look at how Christians, Muslims and Jews welcome babies.  During the period of Lent, we will be preparing an Easter production involving all Lower Key stage 2 children so that they become familiar with the importance of the Easter story. 

Please see our curriculum map to see what we are studying in each area of the curriculum.
