This Autumn Term we will be linking our learning to our class project 'Exciting Egyptians' by studying a series of investigative activities titled 'Tombs, Torches and Timekeepers'. This will include studying; light sources, reflection of light and shadows. In our investigative work they will be talking about steps needed to carry out enquiries and what is needed to be successful when conducting experiments. They will be finding evidence using books and ICT through their investigative work. They will learn how to plan for experiments, describe what they have found out and draw considered conclusions.
We will use ICT as an aid to help us in all of the areas of the curriculum. In particular, children will learn how to exchange online communication with other learners, making use of a growing range of available features. They will create data and extract information from them about Ancient Egypt. Children will also learn how it is important to stay safe on the internet through activities carried out during our Safety Internet Week.
Through our projects, children will also have opportunities to use Design & Technology to research and gather information to help generate ideas. They will draw labelled sketches and ideas on moving parts and pneumatics. They will outline what they are going to make and how they are going to make it along with selecting appropriate tools to use. They will evaluate their work as it develops, making changes where necessary.
