Elm (Year 1)

What Are We Learning This Term?
Welcome to Elm Class!
This term we are going to be thinking like Scientists and Geographers.   In Science we will be learning to group and classify animals including dinosaurs according to their diets. We will be focusing on the characteristics of animals to include the function of their teeth whilst eating.  Using our knowledge, we will be able to sort and identify whether an animal is a carnivore, omnivore or herbivore.
In Geography we will be finding out and identifying human and physical geographical features.  We will be reflecting on our local area to support us in our understanding which will include comparing Lewes, London and Lyme Regis. We will be using our new knowledge to identify significant human and physical geography in the seven continents e.g. Grand Canyon, Great Wall of China, Stonehenge, Kilimanjaro.
Within our topic we will be learning about the lives of two significant people namely Mary Anning and Gideon Mantell who both made important contributions with their fossil discoveries.
