Who do I want to be?

As a Rights Respecting School we are continuing to learn about the rights and lives of children throughout the world and to explore the whole school Big Question, ‘Who do I want to be?’. Through our whole school theme, ‘Our Future Starts HERE’, we continue to focus on turning learning into action in our community and beyond.

In English, trip to the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum will provide children with a first-hand look at artefacts from Ancient Greece and inspire them to write their own adventurous chapter of Odysseus’s myth. Using our List of Magic, we will practice using correct punctuation and spelling and our grammatical focus will be complex sentences, expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials.

In Maths, as part of our whole school theme, we will be using information related to the Sustainable Development Goals as a context for learning mental and written methods for the four
operations, fractions, percentages, decimals, data handling and solving word problems. We will continue to develop children’s verbal and written estimating, reasoning and problem solving skills using our Esther Mate and Add’em

In Science, We will be exploring the world in relation to the SDGs through our topic of ‘All living things’. We will think about food webs, how animals have adapted to their habitats around the
world and as part of the #OneLess campaign, how we can protect these environments and promote sustainability. Working scientifically, the children will learn what makes a fair test, present data in using graphs and charts and ask their own questions about the world
