Welcome to Willow’s class page and welcome back to a new term at Springfield House School. Working with our Year four class is Hannah, Laurelle and Bhavna.
This term we are starting a new Commando Joe’s mission called Bear Grylls: Survivor. Bear Grylls is known for his skill and expertise in the wild. He has survived the harshest of conditions, in almost every continent on Earth. During this topic, our class will undertake a Bear Grylls style survival mission based in the Himalayan region of Jammu. The boys will use their reading skills to find out about Bear Grylls and write fact sheets about him. They will develop their geographical skills using satellite images and maps to compare the Himalayan mount range with our local area and Snowdonia.
In science we will carry out scientific investigations to see what materials would be suitable to build a shelter and then have an opportunity to build and test them at the end of term.
Everything we do will focus on the core values of ‘RESPECT’. The boys will be taught about the importance of resilience, empathy, self-awareness, positivity, excellence, communication and teamwork.
In addition to this work in class we will also be going horse riding once a week. This is a fantastic opportunity for the boys. They will learn how to mount and dismount a horse safely, how to ride and care for the horses.
