Termly Curriculum Focus:

 This term our topic is 'Gardeners World'

To fully submerge the children in our topic we aim to link all curriculum areas to the theme.  In English we will study stories about minibeasts and plants.  In Science we will be looking at growing, plants and insects.   In Art the children will study Andy Warhol and use printing to produce a minibeast inspired 'pop art'.

As part of the topic we will have a trip to Dapdune Wharf to look at the environment and ephemeral art.

As the children are all so confident we have changed the focus of show and tell from giving children to confidence to stand in front of their peers to considering the audience.  To make show and tell more purposeful we have set some rules for what may be shown and both classes are well aware of these rules.  

You may show: 

Items related to the topic - as long as you can give everyone a fact about them

A book to do with topic - locate a page and talk about the facts 

A birthday present - if you had a recent birthday

An achievement - to inspire others

A visit during the weekend or holidays that is somewhere unusual and exciting for others to hear about.
