Welcome to Purple Class!
Our Theme - Habitats
We will look at both British and International habitats with a focus on the former during the summer term.
For English we will read stories and poetry about different animals and habitats and learn new vocabulary we can use to describe them. Of course we will also try to write about and describe them ourselves too.
In Maths there is plenty of scope for describing and comparing habitats using mathematical language during shape, space and measure sessions. We can also use work on data handling using the results of our investigations in the sensory garden.
This theme lends itself very well to Science and Geography sessions. We will learn about how and why different animals live throughout the world, in particular how they are adapted to different climates and life in the water, the air or on land.
From a personal development point of view we will consider how we are affecting habitats in Britain and throughout the world. We will also think about the rights and needs of animals compared to ours.
Creatively there are many things that we can make and do with natural materials.
We are also lucky to have many community locations in Surrey that can support this theme for instance; The British Wildlife centre, Surrey wildlife trust locations and the seashore habitats on the south coast.
Home Learning Suggestions
There are plenty of opportunities for learning about different habitats both locally and when further afield, for instance if you go away during the summer holidays.
