Explorer Class

Welcome Explorer Class! The staff in class are Mrs Harvey (Teacher) and Miss Dycer and Miss Lancaster (Teaching Assistants). In Explorer Class, we believe learning should be fun, interactive and child-led. Each half-term we study a new learning experience. This means that all our lessons are cross-curricular and are always centred on the learning experience of the half term. We believe this is the best way for children to learn because it enables them to fully immerse in a topic. We also always have role play area which is created and changed regularly to go alongside learning experience. 

Explorer Class also love to learn outside where we have a sandpit, small world area and growing area. We aim to build children's confidence and give children a love of learning.

Our learning experiences this year are: 'Crime and Punishment'; 'Robots'; 'Can I Fall into Space?'; 'Explorers and Trailblazers'; 'The Maya in The Americas' and 'Planet Earth'. 

We are Learning - Summer Term 2

Our learning experience this Term is ‘Habitats of the World’ in which pupils will spend time learning about the diverse geographical biomes, which make up our World.  Pupils will explore some of these different ecosystems gaining an insight into the changes in vegetation, climate and animals, which populate these particular biomes.  As part of this unit pupils will get a chance to create their own biome and spend time researching information on the ecosystem they find the most interesting.   

The aim of the Environmental Day on 28th June is to make pupils more aware of the environmental issues affecting our planet by taking part in a range of themed activities.  Pupils will explore the factors, which are causing global warming and investigate ways in which they can act to help reduce this impact.  These tasks will provide opportunities for the  pupils to interact with other pupils and staff across out school community.  The intention is to use this day as a launch pad to spark pupils’ environmental curiosity and to provide a framework to commence the new Environmental National Curriculum learning objectives, which begin in September 2022.
