We have started looking at the IB Framework to approach our teaching and learning this year. Our children have been keen to be involved in the planning and each term builds on their interests and ideas.
Term 1 allowed the children to explore their ‘Rights and Responsilbities’. They found out about some real-life heroes and then decided to set up our School Council. The children investigated the parliamentary process, made their own ballot boxes and sent a video to all other class about what they needed to do and why. We now have our first School Councillors – well done Year 2, Democracy in Action. Planning below:
Term 2 is all about helping Mrs Davies find the right honeymoon destination. The children will be learning about different types of holiday, interviewing a travel agent and setting up a travel agency for parents to decide on the best destination.
This term our learning will be around why technology changes and what are the causes and impact on humans and communities. This is the start of our planning and will continue to be developed throughout the rest of the term.
