Summer 1

Below are the foundation units we will be working through this half term. Click on the links to find out a little more about each subject.



South America

During this topic, children will start by using maps to locate South American countries. We will then be researching well-known landmarks in North and South America. We will recap the world climate zones and then explore how many climate zones does North and South America cross through. We will draw graphs to compare the average rainfall and temperature of South American countries.

Focus Question:  




3D modelling - Sketch Up

Children will be practising drawing 3D models using the 'Sketch Up' software. Once the 3D shapes have been created, the children will add details and will manipulate the images. 



Spanish Festivals

The children will be exploring La Tomatina (Tomato throwing festival) and San Fermin (Bull running festival). They will explore what happens at each festival and will learn to talk about this in Spanish. 

Spanish will be delivered by a specialist modern foreign language teacher from Rainford High School. 



All the learning in this unit is focused around one song: Dancing In The Street by Martha And The Vandellas.
