Spring 1

Our question this half term is:

Does Manchester need an Iron Man?


Areas of learning

As Historians we will look at the Roman influence on Manchester. We will also look at the industrial revolution and World War II


As Scientists we will be exploring how magnets work. We will be asking questions about which objects are magnetic and predicting whether objects attract other objects.


As Artists we will practise doodling skills. We will make Manchester themed drawings in the style of Dave Draws.


In Computing, we will be problem-solving to build and program our own robots. We will have a visit from ‘Juniorstem’ to help us build and program a robot.




Skills As skilful people we will read extracts from the Iron Man. We will write instructions for how to capture an Iron Giant and suspenseful narratives


Aspirations As learners with high aspirations we will strive to develop our drawing skills to make doodle pictures in the style of Mancunian artist Dave Draws.



Technology As technical people we will learn how to make and program a Lego robot to move. We will program the Bee-bots using positional language





Respect As respectful learners we will learn about each other—what makes us the same and what makes us different.  We will talk about ‘falling out and getting on’ in PHSE.
