Autumn 1 Year A - Identity
Who do you think you are?
During this half term, we’re going to find out what makes us the people we are. We’ll consider what traits and features give us our identity. Thinking about what makes us unique, we’ll write stories in which we have a new identity. We’ll learn about branching databases and how to create a classification system.
We’ll gather data about physical features, make spreadsheets and look for patterns. We’ll take part in physical activities that challenge us and measure the outcomes.
While comparing photographs of ourselves with those of our relatives, we’ll decide if we share any features. We’ll create adverts and write a tribute to a friend.
After investigating fingerprints and genetic characteristics, we’ll create 3-D models and design clothing that reflects our personality. At the end of the project, we’ll think about factors that influence our personalities and bring in objects that mean a lot to us. We’ll perform shape poetry about our identities and reflect on our strengths.
We created our own 'Pop Art' portrait designs to reflect our personalities.
Have a look at the fabulous work the children have produced in their first half-term!
We have been looking at Pope Francis' encyclical letter, Laudato Si, and learning about how we can 'Care for our Common Home.'
