Autumn - All Washed Up!

Have you ever discovered anything exciting washed up on the beach? Well, what if it was a message in a bottle?

In the autumn term, we are inspired by sailors, ships and shipwrecks!  We begin by visiting Worthing seafront, ‚Äča visitor from the Novium museum will visit to give us an insight into the history of smuggling that took place in the local area.  Our key texts, The Island and Kensuke’s Kingdom lead us to learn about life aboard the seas and give us clues as to what it might be like to survive on a desert island. We develop our observational drawing through mixed media artwork and explore the RSHE themes of isolation, resilience and tolerance of others. Our science during this term explores theories for evolution, and how fossils might provide evidence for this. Alongside this, in RE, we explore the idea of Creation. We also learn about our circulatory system, including how to keep our heart and bodies healthy.

Questions we'll be asking:

  • What does it feel like to be bullied and suffer racism and prejudice?
  • What makes a good friend?
  • What does evolution mean?
  • What does inheritance mean?
