IPC PROJECT FOR THE FIRST WEEKS: Brainwave - The art of learning

  • 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
  • In maths

    Remember to continue helping your child with times tables – they need to know all multiplications up to 12 x 12 and the corresponding division facts by July!

  • In English

    We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: descriptive writing, fronted adverbials and conjunctions, expanded noun phrases and using speech correctly…and so much more!
