Key Stage 1


 Spring Term 2018 – 2nd Half

We would like to welcome the children back after the half-term holiday to another busy time in Key Stage One! With spring not too far away, our Science work will focus on plants. We will be looking for signs of spring in the school grounds as well as naming parts of a plant and exploring the conditions that they need to live. In History we will be finding out about Samuel Pepys and The Great Fire of London. In Art we will be experimenting with different drawing media, such as pencils and pastels, and using our observational skills to draw natural objects. In PE we  will continue to develop our dance skills. Oak and Elm classes will be enjoying Forest School. We will be finding out about ‘Prayer and Worship’ (with a focus on Christianity) as part of our work in RE and are looking forward to a trip to St Edmundsbury Cathedral.  In English we will be looking at different types of writing, for example poetry and recounts, and include features of them in our own work. We will be studying books by Julia Donaldson.  Our topic for Music is exploring pitch and we will be using body percussion and instruments to demonstrate our understanding.  We will be continuing our Active Maths sessions and using the outdoor environment.  British Values and PSHE continue to be at the heart of our curriculum and we will be working together  to inspire, encourage and believe  in ourselves and each other.
