Our big question for term 2 is
'Why Should We Remember?'
In this topic we will find out about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot. We will learn the story off by heart and then think about the significance of Bonfire night and why we still celebrate it today. We will also explore the importance of Remembrance Sunday and the meaning of the poppy. We will walk to the church for our very own Remembrance service and will also transform the school to commemorate the special centenary of the end of World War One. At the end of the term, we will, of course be celebrating Christmas and learning about the true meaning of the holiday. We will end term 2 with a very special nativity - Baubles!
Below is our termly topic map as well as our 'chilli challenge' vocabulary. If you have any questions, special skills or interesting subject knowledge linked to any of our topics please let us know; we would love to invite you in.
Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.
Hot chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.
Spicy chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
