It is a Geography based topic where children will learn about the geographical features of the seaside, both human and physical. Children will learn about seaside environments; finding out where they are located in the United Kingdom and seaside resorts nearest their own locality using maps, aerial photograph, webcams and developing their key vocabulary. Children will learn about the similarities and differences between seaside resorts and their own locality, looking at how resorts have changed over time.

This term our topic is The Great Fire of London. It is a history based topic where children will learn about the key events of the Great Fire of London, and develop an understanding of the ways in which we can find out about the past through discussing primary sources. In doing so, this unit also provides an introduction to Samuel Pepys and his infamous diary. The children will have the opportunity to increase their awareness of the past by comparing and contrasting past and present-day London, as well as looking at how life was different in the 17th century.
This term our topic is Welcome to Watchfield. We will be learning about our local area and walking around the village. We will be looking at the physical and geographical features of the village and placing these on a map.
