"What are you saving for?"

Term 2's Learning Journey is "What are you saving for?"

Each class has thought carefully about what they are saving for and the implications that their actions have upon our world. This linked perfectly with our termly focus on our school value of responsibility.

See the displays below for the paths that each class took when exploring this question.

Year 5 and 6

As a school, we have been answering the question ‘What are we saving for?’. This has shaped our learning in all curriculum areas, covering themes of environmentalism, protection of the arts, finance and what is important to us.

Year 5 and 6 produced a letter combining our English and Curriculum knowledge to persuade our local MP, Maria Caulfield, to take action on climate change. Luckily, we received personalised letters in response to our action that made us all cheer with achievement.

We enjoyed seeing the impact we could have and how our voice can be heard on a national level.

In addition to this, we were luckily enough to meet with a local expert in the form of local councillor Johnny Denis and put questions to him about what is happening on a local level.

Year 5 - Orca Class

  • How is climate change affecting our local area?

  • What are humans doing that affect our local area the most?

  • What happens when we recycle our plastic?
