Curriculum Plans - What is your Child Learning?

Class 1 - Summer 1st Half Term 2017

Here is what your children are learning about this half term:

Class Topic:  Stories that Jesus told.


Our literacy work will link to the topic, where we will be reading parables and stories from the Bible and following up with some of our own writing. We will be writing some stories of our own, using the idea of a parable or moral.


In maths we will begin with some work on 3D shapes, looking at their properties, similarities and differences. Then we will do some problem solving involving division and multiplication and see how these are linked. We will look at how to read scales to measure weight and capacity, and all the time will be developing our mental maths skills.


This half term we will complete our work on forces, looking especially at gravity and how things can move in the air.


JD will continue with his Tuesday afternoon sessions, working on bat/ball skills and games. On Wednesday afternoons we have a coach from Richmond to do fitness with the children.

Art, DT, Music

We are going to be looking at the work of some modern artists such as Paul Klee and having a go at some pictures of our own. In DT we will be having a go at some sewing!


Stories and parables from the Bible.


Our PSHE topic is ‘Looking After Our Environment’ and we will be doing some finding out about recycling.
