Motion in the Ocean.
This half term, the Year 1 topic is called ‘Motion in the Ocean’
In this geography based topic, the children will learn the names and locations of the five oceans across the world. They will discover what lies beneath the water and why each ocean contains different types of animals.
This learning will be supported by the exploration of the text ‘Dolpin Boy’ written by Michael Morpurgo. Children will make predictions about the story and explore the relationship between a boy and a dolphin.
In Science, the children will revisit their learning from last term, looking at the classification of animals and finding out about their diets. They will also learn to name and identify the different parts of sea animals (gill, fin, antennae, eye, sucker, tentacle, shell, claws) and discover how they differ to other animals.
