Autumn Term 1
During the Autumn Term we explored the topic of Global Issues and discovered about the current global concerns about Plastic Pollution, in order to answer our inquiry questions:
What on earth are we doing to our planet?
Do we know enough to turn the tide on plastic pollution?
Are we alone enough to make a difference?
Please look at this term's Topic Web to see just what we learnt and how all of our learning has supported us to become better global citizens in order that we can make our planet sustainable for not only our futures, but that of our children's, children' futures.
Autumn Term 2
Last term the children answered our inquiry question :
Can a picture paint a thousand words?
The children learnt all about the Stone Age, and how their cave paintings (Paleolithic art) were not created simply for aesthetic experience. However, like much of the world's traditional art, stone age sculptures and paintings were probably believed to have been used to tell of experiences and to depict their hopes. For examples, paintings of animals may have been painted on cave walls to assist hunting efforts.
