Welcome to Saplings!
In Saplings we are thoughtful, enthusiastic, creative and independent learners. We listen carefully to feedback, trying to improve in everything we do!
Classroom Dojo will be used as the main platform for home learning. Some resources may need to be uploaded to this class page and we will direct families if needed. Please ensure you login and check Class Dojo every day to access a wide range of cross curricular home learning activities.
Our main aim is to provide a rich, stimulating curriculum that inspires all children.
We follow the National Curriculum which is delivered through a thematic approach, our overarching themes are People, Animals and Places.
This year we will focus on 'Famous Five', Guy Fawkes, 'Festive Fun', 'Fur, Feathers and Fins', 'One Picture', 'Local Wonders' and 'Under the Sea'.
This half term we will be continuing our broad theme of Fur, Feathers and Fins. We will be finding out about animal predators and prey and investigating their teeth and skulls to decide if they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.
We will also be working on a big art project inspired by the paintings of Franz Marc, involving, line, shape, form and colour.
We will continue our work on algorithms, learning to program and debug robot toys. This will all link to our text The Robot and the Bluebird, by David Lucas
