Autumn Term.

This term our topic is ‘Fabulous Forensics.’ We will explore the world of human identity. We will be thinking about what makes us unique and we will be learning how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or help to solve a crime. Our topic will start with a visit from a team from Gower College. They will teach us how to take our own fingerprints, identify blood groups and analyse hair under a microscope and look at shoe print casts and explain how these are used to solve crimes. In literacy we will be writing newspaper feature articles, descriptions and non chronological reports. In numeracy we will be measuring the height of all the children in the class, calculate the average, produce bar graphs and pie charts to look for patterns and relationships among individual and class measurements.

Science, RE and Welsh will be taught separately.
