Welcome to our Fireflies’ class page. We have had a great start to the year and Miss Waterman and me are so impressed with the attitude you have shown in class towards learning and each other. You have hit the ground running learning about Our Blue Planet with a strong focus on Geography and Science. I have enjoyed creating detailed collaged maps of the world and flap books representing the human digestive system. Some of your discussions have answered our enquiry questions: ‘Why is our Earth called Our Blue Planet?’ and ‘How does pollution affect humans and nature?’ I am looking forward to learning from you as well, please keep sharing your home learning with me on Seesaw.
Our theme for term 2 is ‘Civilisations’. We will be weaving this theme through our curriculum learning about the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. Exploring their living circumstances in comparison to ours. Our text ‘The Wizards of Once’ will highlight the stark differences between two very different civilisations. In Art, you will be creating a masterpiece painting of your chosen influential ruler. This will showcase the fabulous work you did in term 1 on skin tones. Get ready for year group debates and many exciting opportunities for learning.
