Topic

Our topic for the Summer Term is... Lively Liverpool!

                   

We will start this topic by looking at the famous landmarks of Liverpool and plotting these on a map using four figure grid reference. We will link this to our work in ICT by writing algorithms to direct someone to the correct Liverpool landmark from different starting points. Following this, we will develop our geography skills by comparing Liverpool to other places we know, such as Chester and Egypt.

Our learning will also have a focus on art skills; we will be learning about the famous artist Andy Warhol and will be recreating Liverpool landmarks in his iconic pop art style. We will then create some skylines of Liverpool, using shadows to create silhouettes and water colours to create a backwash of the sunset.

Science

In science during the Summer term we will be learning all about light. We will start by exploring shadows and how these are made. Once we understand this, we will design our own investigation to find out how the size of shadows change. This will be linked to our Liverpool art work of making skyline silhouettes. 

Following on from light, we will begin to learn all about plants. We will look at the different parts of flowering plants and what they are used for. We will also learn about the lifecycle of a plant. Once we have a really good knowlegde of flowering plants we will carry out some investigations, finding out what plants need to help them grow and what happens if we change this! Things could get messy!
