Greenland

Welcome to Greenland

 

Greenland is an exciting place to be, it is part of the continent of North America! Like every Year Group at Clockhouse, we have a fun-filled, creative curriculum to excite and inspire the children of the year group. The adults work hard to ensure that we make the learning in Greenland exciting and memorable. The adults we get to work with are Mrs Redgrave, Miss Munroe, Miss Brown, Mrs Williams, Mrs Jackson and Miss Ward. We also have a number of other adults who help us learn, make progress and be the best that we can be.

 

Our exciting lessons are linked to the Clockhouse Curriculum and using our topics we also have the opportunity to develop and improve our English and Maths. During the year, we will be learning through the exciting themes of ‘London Life’, ‘What on Earth is going on?’ and ‘What did the Ancient Greeks do for us?’. Alongside the Clockhouse Curriculum, we have weekly sessions of Drama, PE, Cooking, Messy Play, Mindfulness, Art Therapy, Gardening and Lego Club.

 

During the Autumn term, we learn about London as part of our topic “London Life” The children will learn about where London is and why it is such an important place. We will have the opportunity to create some famous London landmarks in DT and we will be learning about important historical events such as Guy Fawkes and The Great Fire of London.

 

During the Spring term our topic, ‘What on Earth is going on?’ we will be learning about volcanoes and what it was like on Earth when dinosaurs existed. We will be learning about how fossils form and how this has taught us about life in the past. We will learning about different types of rocks and their formation.

 

During the Summer term our topic ‘What did the Ancient Greeks do for us?’ we will be learning about the life styles of the Ancient Greeks and how they have impacted on our lives today. During this topic, we will get the opportunity to dress up in Ancient Greek clothing and take part in some Olympic style games. We will learn about Greek Mythology and the Greek Gods.

 

During each topic some of the children will be set a home learning project which provides an opportunity to learn about the things that interest us and we want to find out about.

 

During the year we will have lots of other exciting events… keep checking the website and letters home for further information.

 

All this sensational learning means that we enjoy our time in Greenland and are ready and excited for the new challenges ahead of us.
