Welcome to Autumn 1
This half term our learning challenge topic is based on a book called 'Azzi'. The story is about a girl called Azzi who is forced to flee her country due to war. It tells the story of her journey to to England, and the struggles she faces along the way. The topic will link nicely into geography and places around the world that are currently in crisis, not forgetting history and previous refugee crisis. Also, art and DT where children will have an opportunity to design and create their own refugee shelter.
Our science topic this half term is about water transportation in plants. We will be looking at how different plants transport water, and explore the fascinating process of both pollination and seed dispersal! We will be acting out the different processes in order to explain and retain the information.
