Read below for an overview of our exciting learning journey in 2022/2023.
Autumn – The Americas
Through investigating ‘The Americas’, children will be immersed in learning about other countries, cultures and life styles in this area of the world. Locational knowledge will be built upon whilst preconceptions will be explored and challenged. Children will be given the chance to draw comparisons with their own ways of life whilst opportunities will be given to reflect on their daily decisions. Learners will critically analyse the impact of human life on the planet and how consider we can make a positive difference in the world. Cross curricular links throughout this topic, will enable learners to encourage supportive debates, develop their analytical skills and work collaboratively with others. Over the term, children’s character will be enhanced by recognising the importance of developing tolerance and understanding of other’s differences, norms and values. This message is of key importance to enable children to continue to maintain positive relationships with people currently in their lives and ensure this with individuals that they will meet in the future.
