Blue Class 2016 - 2017
Blue Class Teacher
And the adventure continues. . .
Our learning this term takes its themes from a book written by adventurer Alastair Humphreys – ‘The Boy Who Biked The World’.
Who is Alastair Humphreys?
Explore Alastair’s website http://www.alastairhumphreys.com to find out more about the man and his infectious enthusiasm for adventure. His latest project is Microadventure, encouraging everyone to have a go and get out there.
There is lots of exciting learning to be had from the book. We will prepare for the adventure ourselves – what will I need to pack? Are you prepared for our survival skills week? We research the countries visited by Tom, the character in the book, covering key skills in history and geography. There are lots of opportunities for real life learning in maths and producing different types of writing in English. Science skills will be learned through the BIG questions that Tom asks. In art, we will look at the techniques of print making and stenciling and artists such as William Morris and Banksy.
Tom asks some BIG questions as he bikes The World.
