Our topic for this term (Spring) has been from A to B. The children have been learning about different types of vehicles and how they have changed over time. We have thought about how we might travel to different places and how transport was depicted through mythology. We created artwork in the futuristic style of Luigi Russolo. The children took part in a trip to Valence House Museum, where they looked at various types of transport from the past and learnt more about the Dagenham Ford Factory. We have also thought about local geography and the human and physical features of the environment. We looked at climate change through Greta Thunberg and how we can help to reduce the human effects on the environment. The children have looked at Great Britain and the world map. We will be designing and creating a moving vehicle which could be used as a toy.
