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

Entry Point:  TBC

Exit Point: TBC

  • We will be finding out:
    • How the brain works
    • About the personal goals that help us to become better learners
    • How to find out facts to prepare for a special challenge
    • How to learn and practise skills for a special challenge
    • How to record how well we are learning
    • How to use what we have learned to create our own special challenge
    • How to wake up our brain
    • How to look after our brain
    • How to design a classroom for learning
  • Children will also:
    • Know that they can affect the quality of their own learning
    • Know about some of the recent evidence and research into the brain and learning
    • Be able to apply these theories to their own learning and reflect on their importance
  • 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 be taught to recognise the place value of each digit in a two-digit number (tens, ones). They will also be taught to use place value and number facts to solve problems.
    • Children will then go on to recording addition and subtraction in columns supporting place value and preparing them for formal written methods with larger numbers.
    • They will start to connect the 10 multiplication table to place value, and the 5 multiplication table to the divisions on the clock face.
  • English

     We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: writing simple sentences, using question marks and creating extended noun phrases.        

  • statutory SPELLING LISTS
