Autumn term 1
Why do we have cities?
This term we have a geography focus on why we have cities. We study the cities of the UK in great detail and consider why cities are important. We will also undergo a field work study in Durham City Centre! In English we read the book ‘The day the crayons quit’ and write our own letters to Duncan as punctuation to create a class book ‘The day the punctuation quit’. In science we begin our topic of animals including humans. In maths we study place value and look at numbers up to 1,000 in great detail. In computing we watch the SMART crew videos and discuss how we keep safe online. Our key author this half term is Roald Dahl and we read his book ‘The Minpins’. We then crate our own Minpins in art using clay and other materials.
