Mundford Church of England Primary Academy

Cedar Class

Welcome to Cedar class!

Theme

Our topic this term is:

How can we help our neighbours?

Logo Image

The class came up with some fantastic questions on this theme, which we will be exploring over the course of this term:

  • Which charities are the best?
  • Why do some countries have more food and water than others?
  • Why are some countries poorer than others?
  • What do we do that doesn’t help our neighbours?
  • Why have some societies disappeared from the Earth?
  • What instruments are popular in other countries which we don’t know about?
  • How are other animals suited to the places they live?
  • Can money solve problems?
  • Should we help ‘people’ charities over animal or environment charities?

We aim to answer these questions, and more, throughout the term!

English

In English this half term we are looking at letter writing and narrative. We are using the book ‘The boy at the back of the class’.

Maths

We are starting off our Maths work by looking at place value and aiming to really secure our knowledge of number.

Science

We are focusing on animals including humans in Science this half term with a focus on charities and human impact on different species and their environments.

History

We will be exploring the Indus Valley civilisation and what they left behind.

Art

How does painting differ between different countries and civilisations? We will be exploring this in our Art sessions.

Music

We will be listening to different compositions from around the world.

Mundford junction dates

Once Mundford junctions dates are known, they will be sent out via the newsletter and updated on here.

Homework

In addition to any issued homework, there is an expectation that the children will all be reading for at least 20 minutes every day. This can be recorded in their yellow reading log. There is also an expectation that the children will be independently practicing their times tables at home. Times Table Rockstars is a great resource for this; if you need your child’s log in details for this, please contact cedar@mundford.norfolk.sch.uk
