Class Information

Term 5 Learning Journey - Is there Strength in Weakness?


This term, we will explore the huge potential of recognizing, naming and using our own weaknesses to develop greater strengths.

As the curriculum driver for our learning journey is PE, we will combine physical challenges with our ability to acknowledge, name and analyse our own perceived weaknesses, then plan strategies to use these to develop strengths.

How can our perceived weaknesses play to our advantage?

Our English text for term 5 is called 'The Explorer' by Katherine Rundell and we will be using this to develop our reading skills in RIC and to stimulate our written work in English. Through the text, we will experience the adventures of a group of 3 young children who are stranded in the vast Amazonian rainforest, at the mercy of nature.

Our foundation subjects will link to this text and also the themes of compassion, team work and failure. Our context for Geography will be fieldwork but we will be focusing on RSHE and PE when discussing our learning journey question mainly.

Term 4 Learning Journey

Can I make a difference?

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make"

Jane Goodall

Our rich text for "Can I make a difference"

The Story of Tutankhamun

Through a History focus, this term we are acquiring knowledge about a long passed period in time, while developing skills to investigate historical evidence and re-build the story of people form another time.

This inspiring text is enabling us to access a long-forgotten world.

Ancient Egyptians, the life and reign of the child-pharaoh Tutankhamun, the Rosetta Stone, mummification, a wealth of artefact images and hieroglyphic writing, are becoming part of our daily learning and discussion, and an opportunity to enrich knowledge, vocabulary and skills across the curriculum.

Term 3 Learning Journey

How do we find the truth?

"If we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our rich text for "How do we find the truth?" is:

The Lion and the Unicorn by Shirley Hughes

Our Learning Journey focus this term is on History, and we are exploring local and world events during World War II.

The children will connect to this major historical event through the eyes and lives of evacuees from the London Blitz, and Lenny's story is a warm, inspiring starting point for their reading, writing and further research.

We will extend their learning to explore local history, people of note, the home front and a timeline of the key world-wide events.

We will explore the concept of "truth" and its importance by discussing the Home Front, Propaganda posters and how people were persuaded to join in the war effort through small actions in their homes.

Through the eyes of Lenny, a young boy evacuated from London to the country, the children will experience what it was like to be a child at times of tremendous hardship, and how to find small positive things even in most difficult circumstances.

What are we saving for?

"The earth is a fine place and worth fighting for."

Ernest Hemingway

Key Text

This term, we will be using 'Wilderness Wars' in our English lessons to stimulate a range of written styles and explore Year 3 and Year 4 grammar objectives.

Read the blurb below:

What if nature fights back?

When her father’s construction work takes Em’s family to the uninhabited island of Skelsay, she is excited, but also a little uneasy. Soon Em, and her friend Zac, realise that the setbacks, mishaps and accidents on the island point to something altogether more sinister: the wilderness all around them has declared war.

Danger lurks everywhere. But can Em and Zac persuade the adults to believe it before it’s too late?

Please do let the class teacher know if you require a paper copy.

We ask that you send in a photo of the work instead of a paper copy to reduce the number of items coming into school.
