Welcome to Barn Owls

Topic: Blue Abyss

Grab your wetsuit! We’re going on a deep sea adventure.

This half term, we’ll be using research and technology to gain an insight into the ocean world. We’ll sketch different creatures and create clay sculptures of our favourite. Writing poems inspired by our favourite sea creatures will help us to develop a rich vocabulary. Using maps, globes and atlases, we’ll identify the world’s oceans and seas.

We’ll also find different ways of grouping living things. Diving back into the 1800s, we’ll learn all about the HMS Challenger. We’ll research Jacques Cousteau and write biographies about his exciting explorations. As a challenge, we’ll create model submarines using recycled materials and program an onscreen submarine. After locating the Great Barrier Reef on a map, we’ll learn about the risks it faces.
