Foundation Subjects

Location, location, location!
Our first topic is a geography focus on the local area.  We are hoping to visit Tintwistle and Glossop so that we can sketch maps, graphs and plans of areas local to our school with the help of technology.   During our map work we will learn the 8 points of compass and how to use 6 figure grid references, symbols and keys. We will also recap the locations of counties in the UK and learn to identify various features including cities, towns, villages, hills, valleys, regions, coasts and rivers.  We will investigate the land use in the local area and how they have changed over time. 
We will add photos of us enjoying our topic and upload some of our work - keep an eye on this page! 
Science - Forces
This term we are learning about forces.  We have created graphs about gravity on different planets and measured the friction of different surfaces using cars and ramps.  We will be investigating air and water resistance - watch out for photos!
