Summer: What's your point?
The below enquiry overview shows the week by week learning for your child's class in English, Enquiry and Maths. You can use the overview to see what your child is learning in school each week.
Here is our Enquiry Mat - a knowledge organiser which will be used to support children's understanding and recall throughout the term. They will be sent home in addition to the overview and will be available for children to use in class.
Our weekly enquiry questions are:
Week 1: How can I convey a message?
Week 2: How do others convey a message?
Week 3: Can a message last forever?
Week 4: What was art worth?
Week 5: Is the answer always obvious?
Week 6: How can a technique be mimicked?
Week 7: What story does a sculpture tell?
Week 8: Can art be shaped?
Week 9: How can mediums sculpt the meaning?
Week 10: What's your point?
A high-quality text drives each of our enquiries and the texts are used to give knowledge and purpose to the enquiry. High quality texts can only be accessed through knowledge of vocabulary in different tiers. Explicit teaching of new vocabulary and using the classroom environment to showcase key vocabulary helps us to infuse rich and sophisticated vocabulary from EYFS to Year 6. The texts are used as a stimulus for both English and cross curricular writing, ensuring high expectations of our children. Reading is interweaved into all aspects of the enquiry to encourage reading and language development and promote reading for pleasure.
