Spring Term 2019

We have been delighted with the children’s response to our study of the Stone Age, which has really captured their imaginations. In the next few weeks, we will complete the unit by performing a Stone Age dance and compose music.

Following on from this, we will begin our ‘Different Places, Similar Lives’ topic, in which children learn about life in different localities. From climate to culture, we will compare our lives with the lives of others and forge links with these communities.

Our Science curriculum includes studying ‘Digestion’, where we will attend an exciting workshop at the Thinktank museum to learn all about the processes taking place inside our bodies. We will also study ‘Magnets’ later in the term.

In Design and Technology, we will create ‘Photo-frames’ where designs will be based on a country of study linked to our IPC unit, and we will use our ICT skills to edit the photos we wish to place inside.

Other topics in our curriculum include: ‘Dreams and Goals’ in PSHE; ‘Numbers’ in French and patterns in Art.

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.
