Key Stage 1

 

 Summer Term 2018 – 1st Half

We would like to welcome the children back after the Easter holiday to another busy time in Key Stage One! In Science our topic for this half term is ‘Animals including Humans’. We will be catagorising animals, for example deciding if they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. We will also be classifying animals as mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish or birds. We will be looking at how animals are similar and how they differ. In Geography we are learning about where food comes from and locating countries on a world map. We will also be recapping the continents. In DT we are thinking about healthy eating and will be designing, and making, a fruit salad. In PE we  will hope to enjoy the better weather and make use of our outside area to develop our athletic skills alongside learning to play tag rugby.  In RE we will be thinking about the  festival of Pentecost and its significance to Christians. In English we will be looking at different genres of books for example traditional and modern stories.  In Music we will be linking to other curriculum areas through the theme of Animals. We will listen to excerpts from Saints-Saens ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and learn how he represents the different animals through music.  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.
