The Big Question
Year 1
We have learned our new big question is: ‘Why can’t a meerkat live in the North Pole?’.  We have been finding out meerkat facts and information using the internet and videos.  We have also thought about some questions we would like to find the answer to this term, for example, ‘Why is the North Pole cold?’

Year 2
We have been recording the Big Answer to our Big Question, ‘How did Rosa Parks and Nelson Mandela make the world a better place?’

Notes for next week:

Year 1
Our Big Question this term is a Geography question!  We are looking for postcards sent or bought from holiday destinations (UK or abroad) for a display and class discussions.  All postcards will be returned at the end of our Big Question.  Please ensure postcards have your child’s name on them! We also need cardboard boxes and tubes for junk modelling.   Many thanks for your help!
Year 2
Please ensure all permission slips and payment have been returned by Monday for our trip.

Best wishes
