Author of the half term (Spring 1)
Our author for Spring 1 is Rick Riordan.
As part of our British values we have been discussing democracy and how we can influence decision making through the democratic process. The class took part in a mock election with a ballot paper of nominees to elect the Class representatives for School Council, Sports Council and Eco Warriors. The children were given opportunities to present a speech to their peers to persuade them to vote for them. We looked at how the democratic system works in Britain and the advantages and disadvantages of this.
We discussed that the rule of law protects everyone and how we need school and class codes to distinguish right from wrong and also how these may differ from some religious views and opinions.
Through our PSHE lessons, we have discussed and modelled freedom of speech via pupil participation in circle time and class discussions and debates. We respect and promote our cultural and religious differences by celebrating multicultural festivals
Homework is given every half term based around the topic we are learning about. The work may range from project work where the children will be required to create something 3D or carry out some research about certain aspects of the topic. It will be varied over the year so that they cover all the subjects.
All children in class are expected to read on a daily basis to further develop their reading skills such as comprehension and fluency of reading. Children are also given the opportunity once a week to use the reading corner to promote reading during their guided reading sessions
