What are we learning about this year?

2020-2021

This term we will creating our very own story sacks. We use story sacks a lot in school. Story sacks are cloth bags containing a children's book and supporting materials such as masks, puppets, costumes and audio recordings of the story. They are a fun way to engage in a book, learn and stimulate ideas. 

We will be creating a non-fiction story sack to learn about people who help us. We will be meeting with members of the community such as doctors, fire fighters and police to learn about their jobs. Using this information we will write and publish our own class book and create our own bag and props to accompany the book.

Vehicle 2- Horrible Histories Episode
During Spring Term, Class 2's vehicle for learning is all about producing an episode of Horrible Histories about the Great Fire of London. The vehicle contains all aspects of the curriculum and will take the children on a unique learning journey. Through the vehicle the children will investigate how to combine multi-media on the computer to make an episode of the television programme Horrible Histories. The children will premier their finished episodes to parents at a cinema afternoon to raise money for Mary's Meals.  With expert advice from guest speakers, workshops and school trips we will become expert historians, camera operators, editors and producers!

Brewood Fire Station - 27th January 2020

 

We have been investigating how fire fighting has changed since the Great Fire of London. We visited Brewood fire station where we learnt about modern-day equipment and rules to keep us safe. We will use this information in our Horrible Histories episode. 

Vehicle 1-  Brewood Sculpture Trail 

Class 2's Autumn vehicle for learning is all about sculptures. The vehicle contains all aspects of the curriculum and will take the children on a unique learning journey. Through the vehicle the children will investigate how to make sculptures and how to set up a trail for members of the public to follow. With expert advice from guest speakers, workshops with artists and sculptors and school trips we will become experts in this field.

Local Sculptor Guest Speaker 

 

On Tuesday 10th September local Sculptor Robert Bowers visited Class 2 to answer their many questions about how to be a successful sculptor. Mr Bowers brought in a selection of sculptures that he had made and the tools that he used to create them. 

Trentham Gardens

 

On Wednesday 18th September Class 2 visited Trentham Gardens to investigate what a sculpture trail looks like. We found out that trails use maps with keys to show visitors where the sculptures are placed. We loved looking at all the different materials the sculptures were made out of and are now busy thinking of what our creations and trail will look like in Brewood.
