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 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 skills. During the year, we will be learning through the exciting themes of the Polar Regions, Healthy Us, Castles and Knights and China. 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 the Polar Regions as part of our topic “Artic Adventures” The children will learn about the people who live in cold climates and learn about different materials to create clothing appropriate to different climates. They will also be learning about penguins and where they live and what they eat.
During the Spring term, we will be thinking about what humans and animals need to keep healthy. This is part of our topic “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. We will learn about healthy food, exercise and why keeping our bodies clean is important. We will also be learning about Florence Nightingale and her charity work. Later this term will we start our topic on Castles and Knights. We will be learning about castles and famous knights. This will include learning about the structures of castles, who used them and how.
During the Summer term, we complete our learning about Castles and Knights. Later this term we will be learning about China as part of our topic “Prepare for Battle, let’s go to China”. The children will consider how China has changed over time. We will learn about their customs and traditions and the different food they eat.
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.
