Look at our Curriculum Map to see what we will be covering in all areas of the curriculum this year!

Autumn Term

This term our topic is 'Around the World.


This term we are looking at 'Stories from different cultures' particularly 'Handa's Surprise' and 'Handa's Hen'. We looked closely at the stories and then wrote our own versions of them!

This half term Elder Class go out for a Forest Schools Lesson every Monday!!! It can get very muddy and messy but it is great fun so make sure you all have a change of clothes and definitely a pair of wellies!!!!!!

This term in Numeracy we will be covering lots of different areas including number bonds, addition, shapes and data handling! We like to take our learning outside whenever we can!!

In our class we are learning all about Judaism. The whole school had a Jewish Cultural Day on the day of 'Rosh Hashanah' - the Jewish New Year. We learnt how Jews dip apples in honey in a tradition that wishes for a sweet new year so we had a go ourselves in our class! We also wrote our own new year's resolutions and made cards. It was an enjoyable day finding out about others beliefs and traditions!!

In P.E we have been learning dances from around the world during indoor lessons and we have been practising football skills outside!
