An Exciting Start to the Spring Term in KS2

A very ‘Happy New Year’ to you all and a warm welcome to our new pupils in KS2.  It is lovely to see both the children and staff returning to school refreshed and well prepared for the Spring Term ahead.

The children have had a very exciting start to the term with the launch of our second MIT-Nord Anglia Challenge - ‘Curious Cities’. This challenge is about raising awareness of an environmental issue in Beijing and all classes are participating. There is a buzz around the classrooms as the children tackle some big issues, ask lots of questions and approach their learning in different ways.    The project involves a focus on the children working collaboratively and taking a lead in their learning.  This week Year 3 have created contracts for their different roles and responsibilities within a group; Year 4 have identified their preferred learning styles and will be using this information to help them form collaborative groups and the children in Year 5/6 worked  collaboratively on an ‘egg challenge’!

Some classes have already been out and about investigating our local environment including collecting data on noise levels, volume of traffic and litter.  The children will now be trying to find the story behind the data they have collected. 

We are looking forward to a busy term which I know the children will approach with their usual energy and enthusiasm.
