Mighty Mountains

advertisement
KEY FOCUS: Geography
In Geography we will extend our knowledge and
understanding beyond the local area to include
the United Kingdom and Europe, North and
South America. This will include naming, locating
and identifying the characteristics of a range of
the world’s most significant mountain ranges.
We will develop the use of geographical
knowledge, understanding and skills to describe
and understand key aspects of these mountain
ranges and volcanoes, and understand how
some of these features have changed over time.

VISITS OR VISITORS:
This term we hope to invite Miss Berry into our
classroom fully kitted out in all her Winter
Mountaineering gear! As a fully trained
winter mountaineer Miss Berry will explain
survival if you should happen to fall from a
mountain plus teach us all about avalanche
awareness!
KEY FOCUS: Art
Our art this term develops our
understanding of how an artist uses
visual elements including colour and
space, and how these can be combined
and organised for different purposes,
specifically through exploring the works
of David Hockney. We will revisit skills
such as colour mixing, and then apply our
knowledge in our own Hockney
composition.
HAWTHORN CLASS Y6 TERM 5 2015
THIS TERM OUR TOPIC IS:
MIGHTY MOUNTAINS
CROSS-CURRICULAR LINKS:
ICT: We will be blogging! We will learn to
create a post with an uploaded url – web
address, upload an image into a post, and
then remove and re-organise posts.
PE; Striking and fielding games, athletics
and swimming
French: Quoi de neuf? What’s in the
news? Looking at French and British
newspapers – layout, common elements
and the way the news is presented in
different sections.
KEY FOCUS: Science
Science this term sees us explore forces! We
will be explaining how unsupported objects fall
towards the Earth because of the force of
gravity acting between the Earth and the falling
object. We will identify the effects of air
resistance, water resistance and friction which
act between moving surfaces. Finally we will
look at mechanisms, including levers, pulleys
and gears, and explore how they allow a
smaller force to have a greater effect.
HOMEWORK PROJECT DETAILS:
Due date: Monday 18th May 2015
Your task is anything at all that relates to
VOLCANOES!
Be creative – explore anything that fascinates you
about volcanoes??
You could create a 3D model of a known volcano.
You might want to use some scrap materials to
make a collage of a specific volcano with pictures
that show how your image relates to the real one.
You could draw a map showing where volcanoes
are located around the world, and label them and
the countries they are located in. Use your
science skills to make an exploding volcano to
share with the class. Or tell the story of ‘the day
the volcano erupted’ - you could write it or
record it.
