Grab your rucksack, tie your shoelaces and zip up your coat because it’s time to explore our school!
This half term, we’ll find out how our school has changed over time, ask interesting questions to the longest-serving member of staff and listen carefully to the answers. To further our investigation, we’ll study maps and old photographs
to see if the school buildings have changed and take a tour of the school grounds to examine the trees that are growing there. We’ll listen to the special memories of people who came to our school in the past and compare our school to a Victorian school to see if life was different over 100 years ago. The question ‘Are all schools the same?’ will make us think and we’ll use Skype to talk to children from a different school to find out the answer. We’ll try different playtime games, write and perform a school song and use our artistic skills to create detailed drawings, maps and plans.
At the end of our project, we’ll think about how much we have achieved at school already, decide why our school is special and invite the headteacher to listen to our ideas.
