Summer Learning Journey 2022
'North American Roadtrip'
Our class 'Learning Journey' approach means that different aspects of the curriculum combine to build a really creative curriculum. This term our Learning Journey is "North American Roadtrip".
Throughout our English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Art and DT lessons, we will set sail across the Atlantic and explore North America for ourselves.
To enhance and deepen our understanding and learning, we will have lots of practical lessons where we explore the different geographical features of North America. We will also explore historical moments of North America, dive into how we can support our SDG's (Sustainable Development Goals) from across the ocean.
Our English curriculum is linked with our Learning Journey. This term we will focus on a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts that will support and widen our knowledge and understanding of our Learning Journey and our English reading, writing and speaking skills. This will include character development, narrative writing and travel brochure creation.
Children will also have allocated time in class to read independently and to an adult. Please ensure that this is supported and continued at home with feedback recorded and signed in their reading diaries at least 3 times a week.
This term, we will extend our understanding of fractions as decimals and percentages. We will explore equivalent fractions, decimals and precentages, and adding and subtracting decimals! Throughout, we will be applying our knowledge and understanding to real life scenarios such as adding and subtraction money.
Our Science focus this term will be 'Living things and their Habitats; including Animals, including Humans (changes in humans).
PE will be on a Tuesday (Orienteering) and a Friday afternoon (Cricket) (taken by Miss Bishop).
Please ensure PE Kit is in all week in case of timetable change.
