Our new topic in IPC is called: The Generation Game 'Young and Old'

 

 

No matter who we are, we all have one thing in common. We are growing older every day. Thanks to advances in health, science and medical care, most people can now expect to live longer than at any time before in history. However, with this comes a great responsibility. Not only must we take better care of ourselves – staying fit and healthy, both physically and mentally,  we must also take care of others, ensuring that our society respects and values everyone, regardless of their age.

We will be looking at how we value people in our society, both old and young.


In science this half term, we are learning about friction, a force that tries to stop things moving. We will be learning how car tires and road surfaces affect speed.

 

                                                              

 

 

We will be conducting a fair test to see how different road surfaces provide different levels of friction, looking at examples of high friction and low friction, designing a parachute to see the effect of air resistance and understanding how a parachute works by creating a push against gravity.

All children have been set targets. Please support your child by asking them what their targets are. We encourage the children to look at the targets they have been set and work towards them. This promotes independence and gives the children ownership of their learning.
