Welcome to KS1

Welcome to Year 1/2

Our Curriculum

During our English lessons we have explored the history topic, The Great Fire of London. The children have loved exploring this through the book ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’. They have produced some lovely work including a diary entry and a recount of the story through the eyes of one of the characters. As part of our continuous provision, children have accessed cross-curricular links to maths, DT and reading in our bakery.

In Geography this half term, we are looking continents and oceans. The children have learnt where we are in the world by locating there villages, nearest towns and cities on a map before exploring there county, country and continent. They explored the 7 continents looking at the human and physical features as well as locating them both on a map and a globe. They have also located the 5 oceans of the world.

In RE, they will be thinking about ‘What Christmas means to Christians?’ and exploring the Christmas story and the meaning behind it.

In Science, the children have been looking at habitats around the world which has linked well with our geography. The children have explored the impact humans can have on habitats as well as how humans can improve the endangered habitats around the world.

In DT, they will research, design and make their own Christmas cards which will have a moving tab.
