IPC

We all know that children learn best when they want to learn. We hope you enjoy some of the examples of our work which show how our children remain motivated through the learning of  Geography and History. It also allows them to make purposeful links and connections throughout their learning and to see how their subject learning is related to the world they live in.

 As part of their Entry Point for 'Clean Water, Dirty Water, Year 4 looked at liquids that 'appeared' to be water because they were colourless. They had to try and identify them by smell only, and were not allowed to taste them. We think you might be able to tell from their faces below, whether they smelled nice or not!

 

In Year Six we are studying the topic "Making Things Go." We have learnt about different types of renewable resources

As part of our celebrations regarding the queen's 90th Birthday, Year 4 looked at portraits of Queen Elizabeth, and created their own paintings. We hope you enjoy them.

    

 

 

We believe that our children should be given the opportunities to visit places of interest, that will enrich their experiences of what it is like living in London, both past and present. We had the opportunity to visit the Tower of London, where we learned about the Jesuit priest John Gerard and his amazing escape during the reign of Elizabeth 1. We hope you enjoy our photos below.

Spanish Day

 

In our increasing Global World, we enjoy learning about different countries and celebrating diverse cultures. We hosted a 'Spanish Day', learning about the different countries around the world that speak Spanish. Some of the countries we studied were:

Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Columbia, Spain and Paraguay. We enjoyed learning about where in the world these countries are, their history, traditional dress, local cuisine as well as cultural art and celebrated festivals.

      

Celebrating Spanish Day

As part of our IPC curriculum, we remember people from the past who have suffered great cruelty under the hands of others. St Monica's class planted bulbs in Bruce Castle Park Memorial Garden in memory of those who suffered during the holocaust.

How do we believe learning happens?

We believe that learning happens when the curriculum is practical, relevant and fun.
We like to open our children up to experiences they may never normally have, and challenge them. Year 4 children have formed a partnership with Alexandra Palace. We performed a class assembly to the rest of the school as part of a project for The Arts Award in partnership with the palace. Our project is based around The Rose Window in the Great Hall.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We like to listen to what our children think about their learning. This is what they told us during a recent interview.

'It's the kind of subject where you like everything'

'I like investigating whether facts are true or not, and that's good because we do it ourselves.'

'People back in history would like us learning about them.'

'Different approaches to our teaching make it interesting, like videos, pictures, articles, films and discussions...and a few arguments!'

'In IPC, I feel everyone is the same and no judgments are made. Nobody is higher or lower.'

'We get to do art, modelling and design, making things and painting. We even get to eat stuff.'

Entry Points and Exit Points


These are an essential part of the IPC curriculum.Entry points promote the topic we are studying, generate excitement and enthusiasm, and open up new lines of enquiry.

In Year 4, we are studying a unit of work called 'Chocolate'. For our 'entry point' we looked at taste and texture, how food feels in our mouth and our likes and dislikes. We think you can see from our photos what we think about the taste of chocolate and lemons!

 

      

 

 

Look at our pictures below. They show some of the work we have been doing recently such as 'Celebrating Britain' week. Each year group chose a British monarch and displayed their work around the school.


 


 

St Martha's class in year 4 have been learning about their local community and how they need to look after their environment. They talked about the dangers of littering.
