LKS2 Curriculum - From Sept' 2020

Spring 2nd

Spring term has been like no other, yet the children in years 3 and 4 have continued to make us proud. Despite school closures, every individual has risen to the challenge of remote learning. We worked hard to ensure no child was disadvantaged, with daily Zoom sessions and a full curriculum which mirrored what we would have been teaching in school.
 All children were given a copy of their core text and it was great fun to discuss these together, albeit remotely! The children loved the practical Science lessons and developing their enquiry skills. Our field work unit in Geography was also great. It enabled us to get out and explore our local area, all as part of our daily exercise.
In the three weeks we have been back at school, our focus has been on settling back into routine and reestablishing that sense of community - our Forest Family back together again. Well-being has been paramount and we enjoyed exploring the work of Charlie Mackesy. 'We are enough' and we have proved that with the resilience we have shown during these challenging times.
In the summer term, we are looking forward to learning about World War Two and the significance of the Battle of Britain. We are particularly interested in the way this affected the people of Bandon, with some children being evacuated to here from the bigger cities. There is evidence of these evacuees attending Forest School in the old Headmaster's log book! We are really looking forward to comparing these real stories to fictional recounts. We will also be building structures and learning about sound (linking to the air raids). It's going to be a great one!
What are we learning about this half term?
