Context for Learning
At the Zoo
Our Context for Learning is 'At the Zoo'.
Within this theme, we will be focusing on the texts 'The Lion Inside' and 'The Curious Case of the Missing Mammoth' in English.
Geography and History
In Geography and History, we will be looking at Chester Zoo and its founder, George Mottershead. We will be exploring maps including map symbols, aerial views, human and physical features and compasses. In History, we will be researching the timeline of the opening of Chester zoo, exploring why George Mottershead was significant and what changes we can recognise from sources.
In Science, we are looking at every day materials. We are sorting different materials and exploring their properties. We will also be testing materials using our skills of working scientifically.
In Maths we are looking at measure including length, height, volume, mass and capacity.

Supporting at Home
We know that the best possible learning experience a child can have is when school and home work together to build on and develop existing skills. We appreciate the amount of time parents give to supporting their children's learning and hope that the documents below help you to help your child.
The documents below will be updated to provide you with current information about the learning taking place in class. There may also be additional resources to support you and your child.
