Welcome to Cedar Class!

Theme: Our theme this term is… 10 of the Best Ways to Make an Impact at Work - iConnectEngineers

As a class we will be exploring the impact of climate change on our world, the children came up with some brilliant questions:

  • How does pollution impact our world?
  • Why is ice melting?
  • What happens if 100 tonnes of oil gets released into our sea?
  • Does pollution have an impact on animals?

We will aim to answer these questions, and more throughout the term! Refer to this terms Newsletter to find out what we will be learning.

What we’re reading in Class:

The Pebble in My Pocket: A History of Our Earth : Hooper, Meredith, Coady,  Chris: Amazon.co.uk: Books Our class reader is Horrid Henry’s Underpants, which we are finding very amusing! In our English lesson we’ll be reading The Pebble in my Pocket which explores the dynamic story of rock formation. The book touches on the importance of ice and glaciers for our planet, this is where we will be exploring the impact of climate change and writing a letter to our local councillor giving suggestions and actions we can do to combat climate change.

P.E Days:

P.E will be on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child is wearing their P.E kit with a pair of trainers at school to wear.
