Our Learning Environment



This term, we will be looking at the topics: Beginnings, Signs & Symbols, Judaism and Preparations. As well as this, we will continue to have our daily acts of worship either as a class or whole school.

Take a look below at our RE knowledge organisers.


We will continue to be using the TenTen resources for RSE, and a programme called 1 decision to teach PHSE.

Signs And Symbols Knowledge Organiser

Preparations Knowledge Organiser


Each half term, we will look at the 4 calculations as well as other areas of maths, such as shape and time! Our homework is designed to revisit past learning as well as explore further the current learning we are doing. If you want to find out more about our maths curriculum, please visit the maths curriculum page of our website.

Reading and Writing

Children will still continue to learn their sounds and reading skills through RWI. Please continue to use the reading books at home to encourage word reading development, as well as understanding the text.

This term we are exploring the text “Jack and the Beanstalk.” We will then be writing a recount in the form of a diary entry. Please find a copy of the text map in your homework book.

Science, History and Geography

This term in science, we will cover a range of topics at a basic/advanced level. The idea is we then revisit these topics again later on in the year at a deeper level. So we will cover everything from plants, to animals, to materials and more!

Within History we are looking at: Martin Luther King & Rosa Parks and their impact on the Civil Rights Movemement. We will also be revisiting our learning on Neil Armstrong and discussing the space race. In Geography we are having a focus on world maps. We will be looking at labelling key areas on a world map, as well as revisiting knowledge on the continents and oceans. Below you can find knowledge organisers for these topics to discuss with children at home.
