Engaging Learning for Year 1

Spring2 & Summer 1 Term 2018


Chance for Change

We will start this topic by immerse ourselves in the story of the BFG and exploring the themes of dreams, friendship and believing.


Throughout the learning journey we will ourselves attempt to strike up some new friendships along the way and seeing what you can achieve if you dream big!


Embracing this chance for change we will be using our newly acquired English, Science and DT skills to write a proposal to change the lives of the people we have met.


We can’t wait for the dreaming to begin!
