'Digimap for schools' is a great resource Walker use to develop children's mapping skills.

  • Can you find your home?
  • Can you draw your route from your home to school?
  • How many schools are there in Southgate?

Year 3's Amazing Collage work on London City Scape!

WOW Year 2, great research and work put into your castles! What a creative year group you are!

Year 3 were assessed on their knowledge of the UK at the end of the term. They did so well! Well remembered Year 3.

Peace and Justice Month- Year 3 celebrate the month, making carnival sculptures. Caribbean and Brazilian Carnival has mixed roots in African culture, Christianity and slavery. With the end of slavery in 1834, the now completely free populace could outwardly celebrate their native culture and their freedom through dress, music, and dancing. We can't wait to see the final pieces!

Year 4- Samba dancing and drumming workshop

'This morning, we had an absolutely fantastic samba drumming workshop. This is part of our 'Peace and Justice Week' in school. We all had a chance to play an instrument and we learnt how these percussion groups follow the guidance of their conductor. Did you know that a samba group in Brazil would have approximately 500 percussionists?' Miss Hawkins 

 

Peace and Justice month

All children, everywhere, with no exceptions, have the right to know about the world they live in and the commitments their governments make. This month we want to teach children about significant people who brought peace and justice to humans from around the world.

 

Our aim is to make these links where possible but an easy link we found was in our humanity lessons.

 

Here is how you can help us at home;

  • Watching Newsround so children are aware of what is going on around the world. http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround
  • Ensuring they are aware of sustainability. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTamnlXbgqc
  • Asking questions such as; How can you save energy? How can we recycle? What does keeping green mean? How does our choice of travelling effect the planet?
  • Developing social skills by asking children; What does treating each other fairly mean? Why is equality important?
  • Concentrating on a continent and comparing lives to theirs. How does it differ? What are the similarities? Looking at the history and highlighting significant events that have occurred in particular countries within their continent (Look below to see what continent your child will be studying in their year group).

 

As a Rights and Respecting School we hope to ensure each goal is understood and as a community we work hard to achieve them within our local area.

The Blue Plaque Heroes Competition

 

To enter these were the requirements:

  • You needed to take a photograph of yourself standing next to a Blue Plaque in our local area.
  • To research existing plaques and nominate a person (somebody famous, Scout leader, Foster Carer, Football coach etc.) who has made a significant difference to the Borough of Enfield. Make sure to write which building you would like the blue plaque to be on.
  • To bring your argument about your nominated person to Mrs Abdi by Monday 30th January.
  • The winner will make a plaque with Mrs Abdi to present to Forty Hall with other participating schools.

 

 

This required a lot of map skills and a good understanding of our local area. Well done to Rhiannon in 3AM!

Welcome to Humanities

 

Walker Primary school aims to inspire children's curiosity and fascination about the world now and what it was like in the past!

 

Geography

 

Throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, pupils are involved in investigating a variety of people, places and environments both locally, and further afield in the United Kingdom and also abroad. Geographical enquiry is undertaken inside and outside the classrooms and pupils are taught key skills such as; observing and recording, asking geographical questions, analysing evidence and drawing conclusions. Children are provided with opportunities to develop knowledge of globally significant places both terrestrial and marine, focussing of their characteristics through a range of topics. 

 

History

 

Like geography, history is taught within specific cross curricular themes with clearly identified learning objectives. Pupils learn about the lives and lifestyles of people in the past, including those of significant men, women and children as well as events from the recent and more distant past in our own area, as well as further afield in Britain and across the wider world. Chronological understanding is central to an understanding of history and our expectation is that as pupils move into Key Stage 2 they will be expected to be able to place events, people and changes into correct periods of time as well as using dates and vocabulary appropriately and with accuracy.
