Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope
We are so excited to have our classroom filled with happy, smiling faces and it is a breath of fresh air hearing laughter in our school again. Our first few weeks back at school will have a big focus on establishing our school routines and being back together again as a Class Team. Our PSHE scheme, Passport will support us in being able to share how we feel in a range of different situations.
Throughout the first half of this term, we will have a Science focus. Looking at different States of Matter, properties of materials and how these may change. The children have already completed an investigation to see whether gas weighs anything!! As we move into the second half of the term, our focus will shift to History and the Maya Civilisation.
Our Literacy writing links to our Science in a magical way, using the short film 'The Alchemist's Letter' to support our creative writing. To get us started we will explore language and a range of vocabulary to support descriptive writing and to help us share emotion in an interesting and purposeful way.
Our RE focus is to explore if Christianity and Science are complementary or conflicting. By reading Genesis 1 and viewpoints from Christian Scientists, we will interrupt and gain understanding to be able to answer our over arching focus. Within our R.E lessons we will use the opportunity to appreciate the environment that surrounds us and the people we get to share special moments with.
Keep an eye on our class page for photo updates throughout this term :D
