Welcome to Enquirers Class 2023-2024
During this year, Enquirers will experience and engage in an exciting learning journey with
Mr Thompson, Mrs Eaton, Mrs Edwards and Mrs D'Oyley. We will be looking to develop their ability to ask questions and to be able to question things, which they may sometimes not believe to be true. As a class we will help to nurture, inspire and challenge each other and aim to be enquirers for life.
Starting Autumn 2, the children will learn that our modern world owes a lot to the ancient Greeks. They are to thank for many ideas and inventions (e.g. the Olympic games, Ancient Greek theatres, architecture, literature and many more). Exploring the theme of social equality, children will learn that when political elections come around, we can thank the Ancient Greeks for inventing the idea of democracy. They will explore rich avenues of enquiry to discover what else we can thank the Ancient Greek for today and investigate how their legacy continues to influence our daily lives and the modern world.
Important Information and Dates:
School for Enquirers begins at 8.45 am each morning through the large gates to the car park gates, having been greeted by Miss Hurt. They walk through the carpark where they will be met by myself at the classroom door. This will be the same process for the end of the day (3:15pm) where children will walk from the classroom, to the carpark gate.
PE will be taking place on a Wednesday and Thursday this term; please make sure your child wears their PE uniform to school with a school jumper or cardigan on those days.
Home learning is, and will continue to be, added to our Google classroom class area. Please encourage your child/ren to complete this and ensure that this is handed in weekly. Part of their Home Learning is to read regularly - not forgetting to comment in their Reading Diary.
Mrs D'Oyley will teach the Enquirers every Monday; she will be teaching the core subjects alongside PE and Science.
Please see our curriculum map on our main class page for an outline of this term's learning.
