Welcome to Amazon! This half-term we are continuing our topic ‘Slavers and Traders’. We will be moving on to learn and write biographies about inspirational people who were involved in the slave trade such as William Wilberforce and Harriet Tubman. In art and DT, we will be looking at ‘underground railroad quilts’ making quilt collages and also a class quilt. Later on in the half-term we will be learning about life as an Anglo-Saxon. In science, we will continue studying changing materials and their properties. In RE, we will be studying the Christmas story and ‘What do we know about Islam?’ In PSHE we will be studying Mindmate (healthy relationships with friends and family) ‘Keeping safe and managing risks - When things go wrong (including domestic violence)’. In PE, we will be working on our social skills when taking on challenges, improving our dynamic balancing skills as well as looking at the game of netball and basketball.
