How did the floods affect us?
Our enquiry question for this term is 'How did the floods affect us?'
We will begin the half term by getting to know our local area with a two week geography unit exploring Bentley, following and making simple maps and learning to give and follow basic directions including left and right.
Next, we will have a two week history unit, where we will learn all about the floods that happened in Bentley in 2007 and 2019. We will begin to use terminology like past and present, a long time ago and many years ago so that we can understand when these events happened in relation to our own lives. We will look at photos and meet people who were affected by the floods too.
Finally, we will have a week of computing. We will cover two units:
1. Computing systems and networks: improving mouse skills
Introducing children to logging in and using technology for a purpose, including creating art.
2. Programming 1: Algorithms unplugged
Learning how computers handle information by exploring ‘unplugged’ algorithms- completing tasks away from the computer
