Today all the children had a session in our outdoor forest classroom. They worked collaboratively on a range of challenges. Our THRIVE approach underpins all that we do in forest school. What a wonderful day of learning.
Year 2 have been developing their sense of place and global knowledge. The children have been creating their own world maps by naming and locating continents and then focussing on which continent we live within. They were amazed that our planet is more water than land!
Yr2 can you remember;
*What are the 7 continents?
*What are the names of the major oceans?
*Where is the UK?
What a great morning of learning so far! Year 6 have been using the HfL maths back on track planning to make sure we blend missed learning from last year with the demands of the Yr6 curriculum. Everyone was so engaged to to ensure we learnt how to find the MEAN.
In our class assemblies we have been thinking about what our learning attribute of ASPIRE truly means. We have been using the breakdown words and looking for evidence in our learning.
Solution / imagination / ambitious / ideas / brave / action / honesty / dialogue / resilience.
We have also started to find out about Wangari Maathai. How do you think she has been an aspiration?
