Autumn 1 IPC PROJECT : IPC PROJECT FOR THE FIRST WEEK Brainwave - The art of learning

What's the big idea?

Every day we are learning lots of new and different things – gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding that we will need to become successful adults. By finding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve our learning, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.

Can You Help?

Do you have knowledge or resources about our project?

Could you give some time to come into class to help with reading? Please come and talk to your child’s teacher if you can help!

Entry Point:  TBC

Exit Point: TBC

  • We will be finding out:
    • About different methods of teaching and how we like to learn
    • About some of the different areas of the brain
    • How information gets into the brain
    • How relaxation can help prepare us for learning
    • How we can improve our memory
    • How positive thinking can help us to succeed
    • How we can support each other to achieve our goals 
    • How we can become more active global citizens
  • Children will also learn:
    • Know about some of the recent evidence and research into the brain and learning
    • Know about some of the different areas of the brain and their function
    • Understand the different ways that they can learn
    • Understand how they can improve their learning and their attitudes to learning
    • Understand the importance of cooperation and global awareness in their learning
  • Maths

    We will be looking at place value

    Place value is important because it helps you understand the meaning of a number. If people just used numbers randomly, no one would know which numbers people meant. You need place value to understand the order of numbers as well.

    Place value is the value of each digit in a number. It means understanding that 582 is made up of 500, 80 and 2, rather than 5, 8 and 2.

    • The children will learn to read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit
    • They will also use the whole number system, including saying, reading and writing numbers accurately.
  • English

    We will be learning how to write: Letters and descriptions.

    We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: spelling rules involving suffixes and prefixes, and adverbial phrases showing time, manner and place.
