Spring is just around the corner, and Owl Class are busy as ever! Below is the topic map for Spring Term 2022, and the timetable (which remains unchanged from Autumn term). Stay tuned as I continue to update this page with pictures from last term and more. I have added the 1000 Hours Outdoors activity sheet that can be downloaded to use at home: for each hour spent outside, you can colour in one of the mandala blocks. It's a fantastic way to try to increase our time outside, and a fun motivator for the children (and adults who like colouring in, like me).
We will be looking at Ernest Shackleton's epic and daring Arctic adventure as part of our 'Location, Location, Location' whole school theme. It would be really fantastic if the children could look into their own research this to get a feel for the incredible journey these men went on: I'd recommend the 2002 Shackleton mini-series for the older pupils, but there is also the BFI Institiute archive film footage from team archivist Frank Hurley that shows the actual Endurance breaking through the ice floes! This makes the adventure and danger all the more real to the children, and they would really enjoy it.
