We have started using 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.
In Term 1 the children considered their own hopes and dreams for the future in their ‘This is Me’ project. They met with some residents from Ashely Garden Care Home to find out about their lives and what they had wanted. The children then decided to focus on our community and what was wonderful about Langley Park and wrote, produced and appeared in their own video.
Term 3 is about the ‘Three P’s; Protect, Preserve and Prosper’. What are the difficulties affecting our planet? What can we do about them? The planning shows the starting point for the term. T3 Walkthrough Map
Term 4 was about learning about the Stone Age and everyday routines and risks including how to build a Stone Age Home.
Term 5 is about communities for all life and how it’s needs may adapt to the needs of it’s members. The planning for the term is below, which may be added to as the children discover more and ask further questions.
Term 6 is about how we express ourselves. Fortune will be looking at the different ways in which stories are told, how they have been told throughout history and at stories from different parts of the world.
