Autumn Term 2018

Our first exciting term in KS2 begins with a trip back in time, to find out what life was like in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Children will be finding out what it was like to live in those times, what evidence we have for this and developing a sense of chronology which will be built upon as they  move through the school.

With a focus on art, we will be recreating cave paintings and designing Celtic jewellery. We will also learn about the types of food that the first farmers would have grown and look at updated versions of dishes that early settlers would have eaten. In our science topic, Rocks, we will be studying the formation of rocks and fossils, learning about different types of rocks and finding out how soil is made. In English, we will be modifying traditional tales and then focusing on bears/ stories with bears.

We look forward to meeting you all and working with you this year.

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.
