This term our line of enquiry is....
Plants, humans and animals - are we all the same?
This term we will become plant and minibeast experts!
We will be learning about mini beasts and their habitats. We will investigate the mini beasts in our local environment and sort and classify them using what we know.
We will also be learning about plants - investigating what plants need to grow and stay healthy.
We will be using non-fiction texts to help us find out information and answer our questions.
At Northfield st Nicholas we teach our English curriculum through high quality texts.
The texts we use link directly to our lines of enquiry and support our learning in other areas of the curriculum.
Each half term we introduce a new text.
The children explore the text page by page over the half term and engage with it in a variety of ways. We use lots of drama to support us and take lots of photos - keep checking back to see what we have been up to!
Our text this half term is:
Moth by Isabel Thomas
