Emergency Rescue! Our new KS2 curriculum is being developed with the children through 12 imaginative learning themes taught over 4 years. This theme is 'Local Study'. Follow now to discover a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that share creative links between all aspects of our children's learning in Key Stage 2
Threads Key figures Beliefs and Values
This topic develops the children’s understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. It deepens their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. We learn about natural disasters and extreme weather conditions, including flooding and coastal erosion. We will study some amazing rescues in the past and around the world as well as visits from some emergency services, including the RNLI and a search and rescue team. The children will have the opportunity to use the knowledge they have learnt across other parts of the curriculum such as creating artwork and emergency rescue films in computing. To link with their children's understanding of the wider community and charity work, they will take part in a fundraising event to support the work of local emergency rescue charities.
Charity Fund Raising
Our fund raising took the form of a sponsored walk around the school grounds. The children carried emergency rescue backpacks containing first aid kits and heavy water bottles. We were really proud to raise a total of £1,252.50 which was split between three charities: the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue and Suffolk Accident Rescue service.
