Kempsey Primary School

To learn with respect and belief; to challenge, create and dream!

Curriculum Autumn Term

Playground!

 

To kick off the year we are going to be taking part in a whole-school topic, using 'Playground', an extraordinary book by James Mollison which is a collection of photographs from playgrounds across the world. We will be exploring the images and using them as a prompt for discussions. We will identify similarities and differences between the pictures and compare them to our own playground. There will be a heavy geography focus as well as challenging children's knowledge about what it would be like to live in these countries.

We began our science topic looking for all the materials used in our playground.  The children were given a blank grid to fill in which they could organise themselves. We then went over to our gym.  The children had to identify the material again, but also explain why they think the material is suitable and has therefore been used. Here are some pictures of the children in action.

We began in maths by looking at counting and place value.  The pictures show the children using a variety of equipment to explore tens and ones.
