Topic

Our topic and humanities learning this half term will focus on the ancient Mayan civilisation.

Science

This half term, in science, we will continue to look at Forces. The curriculum will cover: 

  • explaining that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object
  • identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces
  • recognise that some mechanisms including levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect

This page is updated on Wednesday.
