Context for Learning



Our theme for the first half of the Spring Term is 'Can I Switch it On?' We will be exploring technology around us and how we use it.


We will be exploring old electronics such as televisions and computers.  We will be using screwdrivers and other tools to take the electronics apart so that we can look inside them.


We will be using Skype to contact schools in England.  We have already thought of questions we would like to ask children from a Reception class in Manchester!  


We will be using Google maps to look at places in our local community, Cardiff, Wales and the wider world.  We will use Beebots (programmable toys) to explore maps on a grid.


We will also be doing 'Talk 4 Writing'.  The story this half term is 'Rosie's Walk'.  We have read the story together, along with actions.  We will act out the story and write story maps.  We will then innovate the story, changing parts of the original to make our own stories.
