 Welcome to KS1 page...

 

 

It’s time to put down those new Christmas presents and finish off the turkey as this term we will be putting on our safari suits and heading off to ‘The Animal Kingdom’ as we will be exploring ‘What difference do animals make to our world?’

There aren’t many animals around Burraton so where can we find some? We know! We will come dressed as animals during our first week back and launch straight into our topic. During this week, we will be exploring Art and Music to bring our learning alive.

When the weather warms up, later in the term, we will head off to Latchbrook Leat where we will search for mini beasts and pond life. Now, that is much closer to our locality! Back in class, we will learn to identify and name a variety of common animals, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.

            

We will ask the question ‘Where do animals come from?’ and to answer this in Geography we will be using maps to locate where different animals can be found. We will learn about different countries’ national animals as well as comparing the different types of animals that live in non European countries Kenya and Borneo to animals that live in our locality. We will also learn about some animals that migrate and the route that they take. As we live in the Cornwall, we will also be thinking carefully about the animals which make the county their home and the reasons why.

 

In Art, we will look at the artist Henri Rousseau and explore his art work to design and create our own animal inspired art work. The children will focus on texture, pattern and line as they create their master pieces
