Welcome to the new school year in Mousehole class!
Our topic for the autumn term, we will be 'Extreme Earth' and will focus on natural disasters and their impact on our planet. The children will be extending their physical and locational geography knowledge by researching volcanoes and earthquakes, identifying the causes, the regions where they are most prevalent and exploring the key physical characteristics of those areas.
See the links below for the autumn medium term plan and the topic themed Chili challenge homework. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will have their work displayed in our homework celebration area.
In our computing lessons, the children will use Discovery coding to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, test existing programs to see how they could be improved.
In RE we will be learning about Sikhism, where it was founded and by whom. We will study the key beliefs ofthis monotheistic faith and the importance of them for Sikhs living in Britain today.
Our 'Windows, mirrors and doors' spirituality sessions will be taught alongside collective worship on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Shine celebrations on Fridays.
In our PSHE lessons we will be engaging in the Scarf scheme of work to explore various aspects of relationships.
The children’s reading records will be checked daily by an adult to make sure that they are reading regularly and that they are accumulating reads for their reading karate bands.
Building Learning Power
Our learning power for this half term is 'Empathy and Listening'. We will be looking to inspire all of our children to be engaged in their learning as much as possible, considering the learning power as they engage with the curricular activities.
