Learning Challenge

Autumn 1

Jesse Boot
This half term the children have learnt about the founder of Boots the Chemist.  When he set up his first shop, and how his business developed over the years.  They have learnt about medicines, why it is important to handle them carefully and which are safe to use and why.

Autumn 2



This half term we are learning about when women got the vote.  We will be learning about what life was like for women at that time. What made women want to vote and the lengths that they went to in order to eventually get the vote.  This work will be cross curricular and will be covered in English and music as well as Learning Challenge.  We will be holding a theme day and the children will come to school dressed as Suffragettes, we will have lots of fun making posters and banners as well as singing songs.
