River of Knowledge
Our River of Knowledge topic for the spring term is, 'Saving the Planet' and we will be trying to answer four main questions: why is the Earth such a special place? What problems does the planet face today? How can the planet be saved? How can we play our part at school and at home? During this work we will look at physical and human characteristics of the UK and how these have changed over time. We will use maps, globes, atlases and computing mapping devices to locate countries around the world as well as undertaking some field work.
Our design and technology work will tie in with our topic as we will be using upcycling to make waistcoats and also our art as we will be working on collages of endangered species. Maths will also be linked through data handling and statistics and the presentation of results in graph formats including pie charts.
An extended piece of ROK homework will be set just before half-term.
