Autumn 1

This term our topic is... 

Mining

We will be looking at the history of mining, mining techniques, how animals were used, disasters, and lots more, with a particular focus on the local area.  Children will write information texts covering what they have learnt about mining and persuasive argument texts on keeping mines open or closing them after looking into this in more detail.  In Art we'll look at the Markham Vale mining sculptures before doing some sculptures of our own using wire.

In Science we'll be studying electricity, building and investigating circuits, then making our artwork in to a buzzer game.
