Term 3

This term, we will be beginning our Trans-disciplinary theme of How the World Works. The Central Idea is that light could be the main reason that life has developed on earth. The children will follow various lines of inquiry which will lead them to explore the function and properties of light; how light is used for different purposes and finally we will explore the importance of light in terms of the sustainability of the planet. The Inquiry will involve developing the children’s thinking, research and communication skills.

Finally, children will explore the attribute of Inquirer from the Learner Profile and will focus on the Key Concept of Function.  Please join us at the end of term for their Fabulous Finish to celebrate their achievements.

Eagle class inquire into how light travels in straight lines and why shadows have the same shape as the object that casts them.

Term 2

This term, we will be beginning our Trans-disciplinary theme of Where We Are in Place and Time. The Central Idea is that: human actions may cause peace and conflict and interpretations of this may change over time.  The children will follow various lines of inquiry which will lead them to explore the causes of war, what peace means, whether war leads to technological advances and how wars are remembered internationally.  The Inquiry will involve developing the children’s socio-emotional, communication and literacy skills.  As part of the inquiry the children will visit Maidstone Museum and attend a WW1 workshop.

Finally, children will explore the Learner Profile attributes of Inquiry, Reflection and Knowledge and will focus on the Key Concepts of Change and Perception.  Please join us at the end of term for their Fabulous Finish to celebrate their achievements.
