Spring 1

In Spring 1 we are learning ...  


In Writing we will be developing our journalism skills; unearthing the facts involved following an incident at 3 Honeypot lane in the Big Bad Forest, to write our own newspaper report. We will then move on to looking at playscripts and the story of Beowulf.


In Oracy we will be participating in a debate in class, discussing the question: Was the Anglo-Saxon period really a dark age?


In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, developing strategies for efficient multiplication. We will then revisit our learning on length and perimeter before moving on to learning about decimal numbers.


In RE we will be learning about Sikhism. 


In History, we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons who came to Britain following the collapse of the Roman Empire. We will be looking to answer the question: Was the Anglo-Saxon period really a Dark Age?


In Science, we will be learning about Electricity and creating our own electrical circuits.


In Art, we will be exploring sculpture; making vessels out of clay.  


In PSHE, our ‘What is important to Me’ topic will see us discussing our friendships.


In PE, we will be learning to move with expression and stay in character while exploring our Cats dance unit.


In Computing, we will be programming in Scratch.


In French, we will be learning the vocab for some zoo animals through the sharing of a range of authentic French texts. 


In Music, we will be writing music based on key signatures.

Spring 1 Knowledge Organisers  


Knowledge Organisers should be used to support your child throughout the topic being covered. They provide end points which is the knowledge that children will gain from this unit of work. They also show the learning that has taken place before and how this will link to future learning. Children will use these both in school and at home to supplement their learning, allowing us to work collaboratively together.


Knowledge Organisers are designed to help provide additional support and direction for families to support learning at home. They can be used as a point of reference for year group knowledge and expectations within the given topic area.
