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

Entry Point:  TBC

Exit Point:  TBC

  • When they learn children will be:
    • Investigating
    • Thinking
    • Reflecting
    • Researching
    • Teaching
    • Observing
    • Assessing
    • Presenting
  • 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.

    • Children will be taught to use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together three numbers.

    Remember to continue helping your child with times tables – they need to know all multiplication and division up to 12 x 12!       And much more!

  • English

    We will be continuing to improve our handwriting and punctuation use. Importantly, we’ll be continuing with editing and checking for mistakes.

    And much more!

  • statutory SPELLING LISTS

  • PE

    P.E is on:

    • Wednesdays for both classes
    • Fridays for Griffon 1 
    1. Remember to have your P.E kits in for both these days (including plimsoles). School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt. PE kits should be in school at all times. 
    2. Make sure you have leggings or tracksuit bottoms as we will be outside for P.E unless it is raining
    3. School PE uniform is black shorts (or tracksuit bottoms) with a white t-shirt and plain black trainers - NOT your school shoes!).

    Children will also need footwear for PE that is suitable for outdoors and kept in school at all times.

    N.B Trainers are to be different than their normal school shoes.
