Our current topic is Flow

 

In September, your child will be studying the topic “Flow”.   We’ll visit a local pond. We’ll collect water and soil samples to complete science experiments. We’ll study working water wheels, investigate the water cycle and use natural materials to make models that demonstrate river formation. We’ll mix watercolours to create paintings in art. Our map reading and research skills will help us to find out about world famous rivers. In PE, we’ll play team games to ‘cross the river’  without falling in! At the end of the project, we’ll build a bridge and sculpt messy mud rivers outdoors.
