CYCLE A 2018-2019

Autumn term- Wheels, Wings and other things

During the Autumn term, Year 1 and 2 will be learning all about ‘Wheels, Wings and other things’. We will be transported back in history to explore how vehicles have changed during the years and what they might look like in the future. We will have the opportunity to learn about inspirational and significant historical figures, such as the Wright brothers, who made and flew the first successful plane, and George Stephenson, the ‘father of the railways’. In Science, we will learn all about different materials and consider why cars are made from the materials that they are and see if we can find any alternatives using our scientific knowledge and investigation skills. In Geography, we will learn about different journeys that we may take in our local area and learn how to create simple maps while identifying key local landmarks.
