Science - Light
We see objects because our eyes can sense light. Dark is the absence of light.
We cannot see anything in complete darkness. Some objects, for example, the sun, light bulbs and candles are sources of light. Objects are easier to see if there is more light. Some surfaces reflect light. Objects are easier to see when there is less light if they are reflective.
The light from the sun can damage our eyes and therefore we should not look directly at the sun and can protect our eyes by wearing sunglasses or sunhats in bright light.
Shadows are formed on a surface when an opaque or translucent object is between a light source and the surface and blocks some of the light. The size of the shadow depends on the position of the source, object and surface.
The Greeks hated the Persians. The Persians took over Macedon and controlled their King until the Greeks forced the Persians out. Phillip then became king of Macedon. It was his dream to unite all the Greek city-states and defeat the Persians once and for all. However, Phillip was betrayed by his own bodyguard before he could realise his dream.
When Philip was assassinated, Alexander became king of Macedon. He defeated the Persians and took over their territory with his Greek army. When he reached Egypt he built a city and named it Alexandria. Alexander’s army eventually reached the mighty River Indus but his Greek soldiers wanted to go home.
Ptolemy built a library in Alexandria after Alexander’s death. Alexandria became a city buzzing with new ideas about mathematics and geometry, ideas about science and medicine.
This term, the children will focus on rounders. They will learn different skills and techniques, rules of the game and the importance of being part of a team in order to play effectively and successfully.
Art/Design & Technology
This term, we will link our art to our History topic of Alexander the Great.
Children will learn how to work with and manipulate clay, to create a replica of a head statue of Alexander the Great.
Children will learn how to use their hands and tools to create different textures and shapes to construct a 3D sculpture!
Health & Relationships Education - Healthy bodies, Healthy Minds
This topic explores how to stay healthy, both physically and mentally. It explores ways to maintain wellbeing and prevent illness; how to develop a healthy, balanced lifestyle; and the consequences and effects of different habits and choices.
It encourages the development of positive self-worth and recognition, what might affect or influence unhealthy ways of thinking, and how to overcome this.
