Our Big Question- How Can I Find Out About Things?

THE BIG QUESTION- HOW CAN I FIND OUT ABOUT THINGS? VOCABULARY MAT

For the first part of our big question, we will be thinking about 'What Can I See?'

Your child will look at the work of the architect Zaha Hadid. They will examine photos of her buildings and be encouraged to design and build their own structure. They will read books, both non-fiction and fiction that investigate architecture.These books are linked below.

 

We will also be learning about Henri Rousseau, an artist who always wanted to travel to hot countries and draw animals and plants but never left his native France, so had to use his imagination and observational skills where he was, a good example for us to look at during lockdown.

 

Your child will examine various sources of information, such as atlases, a globe, non-fiction books, fiction books, photographs, blueprints and web searches for research.

 

We will then go on to use the senses of touch, taste, smell and hearing to investigate the world around us.

There will be weekly experiments posted below, so please check the website for these.

 

Our Reception class is signed up for the yearly RSPB bird survey. This data will support the RSPB and also will be useful for mathematical work as we start 'Survey Of The Week.'
