Autumn 2 - Worldly Wise: Inventions!

Welcome back!

Every week, pupils have a 'Worldly Wise' assembly where they build and grow their own body of general knowledge.  By knowing a little about a lot they will be able to place events and ideas in context in a variety of different situations.

This half term we will exploring 'Inventions'. Pupils will bring their booklets home soon.

The 'Worldly Wise' Challenge is an opportunity for pupils to complete further research and tasks linked to the half termly topic.  There are separate activities for Y3/4 (green sheet) and Y5/6 (blue sheet).  They can do as many tasks as they like and do not have to link to the landmarks we have explored in school but can be any landmark that sparks their interest. A copy of the challenges will be sent home this week.

This is optional, and on top of their daily 15 minutes of reading, 15 minutes of spelling practice and 15 minutes of times tables practice.  

The pupils will receive a special 'Worldly Wise Challenge' certificate at the end of the half term on completion of a project that shows a significant level of effort and challenge undertaken by the individual child.

You pick what you research; you're in control!  We cannot wait to see where your learning takes you!
