This term we will be learning all about Animals including Humans. 

In this unit we will explore a variety of ways to identify, sort, group and classify living things. We will learn how animals are split into 'vertebrates' and 'invertebrates' and use and create classification keys to group, identify and name living things from the local habitat and beyond. We will also look at how environments are subject to human-made and natural changes, and that these changes can have a significant impact on living things.






In Geography this term we are focussing on the exteme earth.

We will delve into the destructive powers of nature and learn how extreme our earth can be. From volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes, we’ll see how powerful nature can be. Through discussion and practical tasks, we will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.

In History we will be finding out about the Industrial Revolution.

We will explore a time when the manufacturing of goods moved from small shops and homes to large factories. This unit will teach us about the changes in culture as people moved from rural areas to big cities in order to work. We will investigate the new technologies, new types of transportation, and a different way of life for many. Rochdale played a big part in the revolution and we will see how the production of cloth and its transportation impacted this small town.
