Sign up to The Rainforest Project

(January/February 2020)
The Rainforest topic encourages children to develop a sense of place; where rainforests are located through map and Atlas work, the effects of natural and human events upon a place and how we may change the environment both locally and globally. Through a range of literacy activities children will read about the rainforest, complete cloze/comprehension activities, sort and organise information and create a fact-file based on findings.
Numeracy tasks will develop children’s data handling skills and give opportunities for reading tables/charts on rainfall. There are a number of fun, artistic and investigative tasks associated with this topic including studying and recreating the art of Henri Rousseau, ideas to create the layers of the rainforest and how to make a rainforest in the classroom!

Sign up to The Olympics Project

(May/June 2020)
In the summer of 2020, all eyes will turn to Tokyo, Japan for the summer Olympics. As this event only comes around once every four years, it will be a very exciting time and there will be many learning opportunities for children. Through this topic, they will increase their knowledge of the World Around Us as they learn about the culture of the host city, Tokyo and gain knowledge on how this city was chosen.
They will increase their thinking skills and capabilities through self management, creativity, decision making and working with others to explore the history of the Olympics with their ancient games and mythology and comparing these to the sports that will be included in 2020. They will manage information through discovering which nations are involved and by exploring case studies on the athletes themselves.
