This half term we are going to be historians and answer the question ‘How has technology changed our lives?’. We will be thinking about how people communicated in the past and create timelines, including some dates, to show the progression of new inventions. We will explore how technology has developed over time and what life was like before the World Wide Web.
We will consider the impact Sit Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web had on people’s lives and its importance today. We will also compare the work of Tim Berners-Lee to other innovators and scientists, such as Alexander Graham Bell, Gugliemo Marconi, John Logie Baird, Ray Tomlinson, William Caxton as well as Steve Jobs and aspire to be as innovative as they were and still are.

In science we will be learning about materials and their properties. Finding out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. As well as identifying and comparing the uses of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick/rock, and paper/cardboard.
We will be scientists and observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants. As well as finding out and describing how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.
