We have returned from our half term break fully refreshed to carry on with our exciting learning opportunities here at WHCPS. Like the weather outside our Topic for this term has changed. It's linked to weather too ... extreme weather!

The children will be introduced to the six main types of biome; Aquatic, Desert, Forest, Grassland, Rainforest, Tundra. We will look briefly at each of the key features of the biomes in turn. Children will learn about the difference between weather and climate. The children will understand the idea of longitude and latitude and how our planet is split into; The Equator, Northern Hemisphere, Southern hemisphere, the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer, and the Arctic and Antarctic Circle. We will have discussions about where the hottest and coldest places on earth are. The children will then develop knowledge that extreme weather conditions can create extreme weather events such as storms and hurricanes. The children will then study another extreme weather event, the Tsunami and discuss how it is a serious of extremely destructive waves that cause mass destruction and devastation. Following this the children will produce a newspaper report on the extreme weather that they worked on. They will finish by providing a shared example and talk through each of the key features used.
