Welcome to Earth Class (Years 1 & 2)

Welcome back Earth class families. Happy New year! May 2019 bring you all learning, love and laughter.

We intend to ‘hit the ground’ running this term and I am sure the children will respond well to this term’s units of learning.

Our topic this term is ‘Homes’ and our starting related CCC question is ‘What Makes Our Home Feel Like Home’. This is a perfect opportunity to explore and enrich our knowledge of different types of homes, homes in the past, natural habitats and our homes through the season. We hope to enrich our curriculum with a visit back in time to Cogges Manor Farm Museum. As well as this Years 1 and 2 will embark upon a unit of Forest School visits. So watch this space for more details! The children have begun to explore this question through writing, history, geography, science and art, and will be inspired to learn through a variety of exciting stimuli.
