Curriculum - Autumn Term 2021

This term, we are travelling back to prehistoric times, where we will be learning about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. Our learning will take us on a journey to incredible places such as Stonehenge and Skara Brae where we will discover how Stone Age people lived. We will be exploring how people used land and about their daily life. In Science, we will discover how rocks and fossils are formed, the permeability of soil and about the marvellous Mary Anning. 

Can you imagine a world without chocolate? We can't! We will be discovering about where chocolate comes from, how it is made and becoming real-life chocolatiers in the classroom. In addition to this, we will be visiting Cadbury World where we will learn about how chocolate makes it from bean to bar. In art, we will be inspired by Andy Warhol to create our own pop art masterpieces.

Curriculum - Spring Term 2022

This term will take us back to the ancient civilisations. To begin, we will be learning about the lives of the Ancient Greeks and how they have influenced our lives today. In particular, we will be focusing on the evolution of democracy and how important this is in our society. We will be exploring the wonderful world of Greek mythology in English to build up to writing our own Greek myth. In art, we will be working with clay and creating our own pots.

After February half term, we focus on Ancient Egypt. We delve into the roles of Egyptian society and find out if being a pharaoh really is the best job of all! In Geography, we will discover how crucial the River Nile is to life in both Ancient Egypt and Egypt today. 'Light' is our Science topic this term, where we will be investigating light sources, shadows, and transparent, translucent and opaque materials.

Curriculum - Summer Term 2022

This term we are venturing 'Into the Forest' where Cannock Chase will be a focus of our learning. We will be developing our locational and place knowledge by using and creating maps. As Spring blooms, we will use this as inspiration  for our artwork. Children will be learning how to print and create a self portrait in the style of our focus artist Frida Kahol. 

Once we have learnt about forests in our locality, we will be moving further afield to the Amazon Rainforest. In Geography, children will learn about biomes, locate countries in South America and make comparisons to the UK. After learning how to write a persuasive speech about the importance of saving the rainforest, we will embark on an important Design and Technology project. Here we will create a bag to sell in order to raise money for the WWF.
