Welcome to Mr Green’s Class! We are so thrilled for our first term. Term One will be about settling into new routines, getting to know new faces and names and learning lots of new things.
This term, we are learning about the 2016 Rio Olympics. This will be a project-based topic to answer our key question... WAS IT ALL WORTH IT? Throughout the project, we will be researching the different promises Rio made, the communities within Brazil and how the Olympics affected people's lives. To showcase our learning, we will be writing articles and newspaper reports on the Olympics. We will also be learning about physical and human geography and the Amazon rainforest to coincide with the project. In Citizenship, we will find out about voluntary groups and different community projects to help us create our own community project. Science is closely linked as well as we will be learning all about the skeletal system, our muscles, bones and how our bodies work to perform the best in sport, just like the athletes in the Olympics! PE will then see us perfecting the skills to play a game of volleyball and then later into basketball. In maths, we will be recapping all we know about number and place value, ready to dig deep and show off our mathematical knowledge with much more challenging learning later.
We are so enthusiastic for the new school year and cannot wait to be showing off our learning!
