Spring Term 2019

The new term begins with an exciting new unit of work focussing on holidays and travel, called ‘From A to B’. Our topic begins with a trip to Norway, where the children will be making their own passports, going to the airport, checking in, and getting on a plane. We will be finding out about different modes of transport throughout history and how new technology has changed the way we travel. The children will have the chance to learn about children's lives from different countries and even learn a few words in other languages.

In Geography, we will be focussing on physical and human features of different locations and learning map skills. We will also be learning about the history of Dorridge, going on a walk around the local area and making our own maps of Dorridge. In Art, we will be looking at a range of artists and how they use different artist media to create pictures of vehicles.

Our daily English, Phonics and Maths sessions will be practical, engaging and, wherever possible, linked in to our overall topic. We are continuing to focus on reading for pleasure as well as working hard on comprehension skills and different text types.

Curriculum overview

We started using the International Primary Curriculum in September 2016. You can find more details of it on the Curriculum and Subject pages on the menu to the left. At the beginning of every unit of study we will be sending out a letter to parents that explains the sort of things that are being covered in the unit. Copies of these letters are available from the links below, as well as an overview for this year group.
