Year 1 and 2 - Miss Sugden

Wagons Roll

 

Yee-hah! Join us on a wild adventure exploring the birth of a nation! This topic will allow children to discover and imagine what life was like in the Wild West! They will find out about its inhabitants and how they lived and learn about life in the good old U.S of A!  They will engage in historical discovery by finding out who the Native American Indians were and how they lived their lives. In Geography, the children will learn about the different tribes and what life was like living on the Great Plains.  Linked to their historic research, children will investigate the Native American way of life and how this was disrupted by new settlers and the railroad companies.  Linked to their ‘explanations’ work in English, children find out who cowboys were and what they did, learning about the long drive and what a cowboy's job actually involved.  The children will use this information to write creative job descriptions for cowboys on their imaginary ranch!  Art, Science, Computing and Geography work will be linked as the children explore the landscape and climate of the Great Plains of America, looking at the plants and creatures that can be found there.  Children will develop their design and critical thinking skills in DT by building their very own cowboy stage coach, using tools effectively to create wheels and axles.  The design process links will be linked to their Science work; investigating everyday materials and their uses by choosing a canopy for their stage coach that will be strong and waterproof!   Children will apply their mathematical measuring skills when constructing their stage coaches and further develop their understanding of money and decimal notation and weight in our ‘Cowboy’ role-play opportunities.
