Stars Class Curriculum Project

Stars Class Project - Rocks, Relics and Rumbles

In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, your child will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface.

They will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. They will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning.

They will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. They will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have.

Additional  Information

During term 6, your child will be participating in weekly Forest School sessions. The sessions will take place on a Monday afternoon in the forest area within the school grounds.

Please ensure that your child has the following clothing to change into each Monday:

  • Outdoor shoes – preferably wellingtons
  • A warm coat – preferably waterproof
  • Trousers (for example: tracksuit bottoms)
  • An extra layer of clothing depending on the weather

Please write your child’s name on their clothing.

 

During Forest School sessions, children are encouraged to work with others to carry out activities such as den/shelter building, role play, exploration, practical and creative skills and tasks. I am sure that your child will make the most of this wonderful opportunity to learn outdoors, and apply their new learning within the classroom.

PE is on a Thursday this term!
