  • Compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches.
  • Use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.

 

In Computing, the National Curriculum objectives that will be covered are: 

  • Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
  • Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact. (As part of PSHE)

In Art, the National Curriculum objectives that will be covered are:

  • To create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas.
  • To improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing, painting and sculpture with a range of materials [for example, pencil, charcoal, paint, clay].

In History, the National Curriculum objectives that will be covered are:

  • Improvise and compose music for a range of purposes using the inter-related dimensions of music.
  • Listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory.

PSHE

The children will:

  • I can identify the most significant people to be in my life so far.
  • I know some of the feelings we can have when someone dies or leaves.
  • I understand that there are different stages of grief and that there are different types of loss that cause people to grieve.
  • I can recognise when people are trying to gain power or control.
  • I understand how technology can be used to try to gain power or control and I can use strategies to prevent this from happening.
  • I can use technology positively and safely to communicate with my friends and family.

PE

In PE lessons the children will play competitive games of tri-golf, modified where appropriate and apply basic principles suitable for attacking and defending.
