Some Friendly Reminders:
Enquiry Based Learning:
In year 1 we are teaching children to become independent learners by following an enquiry based approach to learning. We begin each term with a new topic that we discuss as a class. We discuss what the children already know about the topic at hand and what they would like to find out throughout the course of their enquiry. The children then come up with questions that they would like to research the answers to in their learning. From this children are grouped based on the subject they are interested in most.
In the Summer term the focus of our Enquiry will be:
Our Local Community
We will be learning and researching about our local community, including such places as our school, our homes, our shops and more. The children will have opportunities to further explore what they already know about their local community and expand on this knowledge.
