Spring Term Project

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

We will focus on environmental issues and how we can help to care for the world we live in today . We will also focus climate change, pollution and the problem with plastic . In English, we will be reading the poem of 'Hey Little Ant' and thinking about the importance of animals and insects. This project will have a geography, design technology and art focus although other subjects will be explored such as science, computing, RE and PSHE. 

The following websites provide information on some of the issues we have thought 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 during our library session. Reading plus can now be used at home and we would encourage children to be using this programme at home.

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. TT Rock stars is an excellent programme to pratice times tables and the children should be accessing this at home.
