Term 3

Our Topic this term is entitled 'Home Sweet Home'.

Home is where the heart is! Are all homes the same and who lives where? This term we explore the idea of what a ‘home’ means. All homes are different. Our homes are in the United Kingdom, which is made up of four countries – what can we learn about these countries to help us better understand where we live? Are homes made up of bricks or families? We think about the difference between a ‘home’ and a ‘house’. We will explore materials used to make houses but also what it is that makes home feel special to us.

As hands-on historians we travel back in time and consider how houses have changed over time and think about why this might be.

As growing Geoographers we ask; ‘What countries make up the United Kingdom?’ ‘What is a capital city?’ ‘What are the capital cities of the United Kingdom?’

As determined Designers we will design and make a house based on a design criteria that the three little pigs have sent to us.

As super Scientists we will compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their simple physical properties and use this to inform our investigations.
