Learning about the Environment
As you know, Ms Lan recently travelled to Antarctica to participate in Sir Robert Swan’s expedition in her role as our BVIS Eco-Ambassador. This is because BVIS is committed to developing children’s learning about the environment and I thought I would share with you some of the learning currently taking place in the Primary school:Lien Ket in Year 5
This term, Year 5’s Lien Ket topic is called “Climate Change”. One of their tasks has been to turn an old T shirt into a bag or cushion. This has involved creativity, design and making skills as well as perseverance.
Y5 parents will be able to find out about their children’s learning in this environmentally focussed topic in the last week of term at their ‘exit point’.Assessment unit in Year 6
Year 6 children have been sitting written tests this week which will provide their teachers with information about their progress for the end of year reports. However, the teachers are also going to assess the children’s ability to apply their learning as they reach the end of their time in the Primary School in a special unit of work starting next week. The unit is entitled “Eco Park Project” and will involve the children in using a wide range of skills as well as applying their understanding of environmental issues.
