Spring 1 - No Place Like Home
Here's what we will be doing during Spring Term 1: No Place Like Home
This half term's topic "No Place Like Home" is centred around the Linaker values of 'Community' and 'Resilience'. We are learning about where we live, where we come from and what is meant by 'home'. We will learn about Southport and its place in the UK and of course, Europe, at this momentous time in our country's history. This will inform our computing work, learning about algorithms and coding, to program a digital toy to find its way around a map.
We are helping new children to settle in, understanding what it means to belong and feel welcome and safe. In our class text, 'Beegu', a little alien gets lost on Earth where no-one understands her and everything is quite scary at first, until she meets kind, welcoming and accepting children in a playground. We are learning about the emotions Beegu experiences in the story and how to cope with similar emotions in real life.
