Throughout the Spring Term, our year 4 pupils had been studying the topic living things and their habitats. This topic focussed on the 7 life processes of a living thing, grouping animals, creating classification keys, and the various dangers to animals.
On Friday 24th January 2020 our student councillors made a very special trip to Leicester Royal Infirmary to deliver ‘goody bags’ to the hospitals charity department.
Throughout the Autumn term, children in year 5 had been studying World War II in particular they focused on evacuees during that time.
Our Year 6 children visited the Warning Zone in Leicester on 4th of December 2019.
As part of the Early Years Curriculum, we encourage children to learn through outdoor play. Research shows that the world is best experienced in its natural form. We believe that the child’s first experience with the world around him/her will go on to have a profound influence upon their lives. Thus, we have developed a curriculum which allows our children to engage in that which is organic and natural; from learning about growing fruits and vegetables, playing with handmade toys carved from natural wood and having fun in the forest.
As part of our History curriculum and work with other communities, Year 5 looked at WWII and the Great Battle of Britain. To support what they do in school we organised a Heritage Trail around Braunstone Village in partnership with Emmanuel Christian School and in association with our Heritage Award partners on 13th of November 2019
Land of Learning has been very privileged to receive free rugby coaching from the Leicester Tigers Rugby Team.
