In this unit, the children will be learning how living things can be classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics.  They will be able to give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics. The children will work scientifically, using classification systems and keys to identify some animals and plants in the immediate environment. They will also research unfamiliar animals and plants from a broad range of other habitats and decide where they belong in the classification system. 

 

RE- 

Why is the Exodus such a significant event in Jewish and Christian history? This unit will give the children a greater understanding of the significance of the Exodus and Passover. It will also introduce the children to the links between Christianity and Judaism. During the unit, the children will revisit the Exodus story, re-enact a Passover meal and discuss the meaning of freedom. 

 

People of Faith- How does having faith affect a believer's lifestyle? In this unit, the children will explore what it means for a person to have faith, how having faith affects a person's lives, values and decisions and they will also discuss the ways in which Christian people build God's kingdom on earth today. The children will learn about the life of at least one extraordinary person of faith and consider the opinion of that person on a specific issue.
