Ospreys

Term 1 – Blood Heart

Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry…blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system! Now surgeons don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy and made ground-breaking discoveries about valves. What might we uncover? This term the children will be finding out how to keep their hearts happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. They will also be considering the damage that can be done through factors such as a healthy diet, smoking and drinking alcohol. In addition to this, the children will be exploring vital questions including: Who am I? Where do I come from? What are my strengths? What have I inherited from my parents? This term we will be answering these questions as the children become detectives to explore exactly what it is that makes them who they are. The children will be learning to view themselves as individuals and explore all the characteristics and traits that help to make them a unique human being. During the topic they will be investigating the classification of living things; looking in particular at microorganisms and how these are both a help and hindrance in everyday life. They will be exploring their own local area and making contrasts between this and other parts of the world.

Term 2 –

Frozen Kingdom Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands... vast wilds, hostile territories, incredible beauty yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of might sled dogs. The children will research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems. They will discover the danger of icebergs and compare this unique environment to other parts of the planet that they have learned about.
