Welcome Explorer Class!
In Explorer Class, we believe learning should be fun, interactive and child-led. Each Half Term we study a new learning experience. This means that all our lessons are cross-curricular and are always centred around the learning experience of the Half Term. We believe this is the best way for children to learn because it enables them to fully immerse in a topic. We also always have a role play area which is created and changed regularly by the class to sit alongside our learning experience.
Explorer Class also love to learn outside where we have a sandpit, small world area and growing area. We aim to build children's confidence and give children a love of learning.
We are learning
Autumn Term - 2
Our new topic this Half Term is Magic and Muggles. We have a fun-filled plan for the next six weeks which is all based around magic and wizards.
In English, we will be using the story of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to continue to develop our grammar skills and non-fiction writing.
In Science, we will be helping the characters from Harry Potter to solve questions about the properties of materials. We will be helping Neville Longbottom find out which ingredients he used to make his potion and discovering the best material to use for Hargrid's Pumpkin Fizz mug warmer.
In Art, we will be using our observational and sketching skills to create charcoal portraits of the characters from Harry Potter. We will also look more closely at the art of Vincent Van Gogh and Joan Miro.
In the final weeks of term, we will be focussing on Christmas and the story of Jesus and his birth.
