Spring Term Project

Our main learning question this half term is 'How can small actions eventually change the world?' 

We will focus on some big issues that have an impact on our environment. This project will have a geography, science and DT focus although other subjects will be explored such as art, history, computing, RE and PSHE. 

The following websites provide information on some of the issues we have though about so far.

Reading Champions

Children should be reading every night at home for at least 30 minutes. Their signed reading champions should be brought into school every day and will be checked frequently. Children are encouraged to change their own reading book at the beginning of the school day. 

Mad About Maths 

Children should also be doing some maths every night at home. Their signed mad about maths should be brought into school every day and will be checked frequently. Challenges will be given to the children weekly. The challenges are to improve rapid recall of basic mental maths that will form the foundations for our learning in lessons.
