  • Geometry - properties of shapes
  • Geometry - Angles
  • Statistics


This half term our topic will be entitled 'Look, Hear' and will be all about how we see and how we hear. 


Children will be taught to:

  • recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines. 
  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye. 
  • explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes. 
  • use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain why shadows have the same shape as the objects that cast them.
  • identify how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating
  • recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear
  • find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it
  • find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it
  • recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases.
