Our topic questions for this half term are:

This is a Geography related topic. As part of our learning, we will be aiming to name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics (including hills, mountains, cities, rivers, key topographical features and land-use patterns) and to understand how some of these aspects have changed over time.
Why is the sound of that One Direction makes enjoyed by so many?
This is a Science related topic. As part of our learning, we will be aiming to:
identify common appliances that run on electricity
construct a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic
parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers
identify whether or not a lamp will light in a simple series circuit, based on whether or not the lamp is part of a complete loop with a battery
recognise that a switch opens and closes a circuit and associate this with whether or not a lamp lights in a simple series circuit
recognise some common conductors and insulators, and associate metals with being good conductors.
