Autumn Term 2 - Topic: Our Planet
Click here to see this terms 'Topic Web'.
Our topic this half term is “Our Planet”. We will begin by recapping facts about our planet such as continents and oceans. This topic focuses heavily on environmental aspects, looking in depth at climate change, pollution, deforestation and subsequently, endangered animals. Due to Barbados Class winning the poetry competition last year, the children have decided to spend their prize money on adopting an endangered animal to promote awareness around the school and start to make an active change to support our planet. We will also be raising awareness of plastic pollution in our seas by creating a whole class sculpture of a wave made out of recycled plastic which will be a fixed feature in our reflection garden. In English children will be self-choosing an area of the world that they would like to write creative non-fiction text about. This will be displayed on our class topic board with string pinpointing where this is in the world - come and take a look!

The Learning Pit:
'The Learning Pit' celebrates when children stumble upon a misconception in their learning. It encourages individuals to persevere and independently climb 'out of the pit' by either recognising their mistake and fixing it OR by researching to find out the answer. Other children or adults may give individuals the tools to help them climb out of their pit. However, the quest will remain on the individual to succeed and conquer their mountain.
