A short video detailing the test timetable and the types of questions the children will encounter during each test.

Our research question for Term Four (Spring 2) is...

 

How can we help a species under threat?

 

This Quest will allow children to find out more about our vulnerable wildlife and look at ways that they can help protect it. This will also allow us to follow up some of the ideas we had during our brilliant Eco Week  about conservation and sustainability.

Our research question for Term Three is...

 

How come everything seems to be so perfectly adapted to its environment? 

 

We will be learning all about how life came to be on Earth including evolution and inheritance with a particular focus on Charles Darwin. We will also be exploring habitats and looking at how animals and plants are classified and how they are adapted to suit their environment.

Children in Need Fun Run organised by the BRILLIANT Sports Council!

Our research question for Term Two is...

 

How can we follow our own line of inquiry linked to World War Two?

 

During this Quest, children really will have the opportunity to further develop their skills of research and follow their own areas of interest by coming up with their own 'Quest' question! Following a very successful Quest during Term 1, children will build on new knowledge and learn more about subjects within this area that they are passionate about.

Creating freeze-frames for the Dunkirk Evacuation

Welcome to Gentian 2018-2019!

Our research question for Term One is...

 

 How do people's lives differ during World War Two?

 

We will be learning all about life in Britain during the 1940s and finding out how the war impacted on different people. We will look at some important battles and learn about protection and precaution during the war - we will even try out a 'mock' public air raid shelter.
