Curriculum Information

 This half-term our learning is inspired by our topic:

  'Family Favourites'

  How have parent's/grandparent's perceptions of school changed?


We will be reading "Nibbles the Book Monster" by Emma Yarlett in our Literacy lessons to produce our own recount in the form of a diary .

In Maths this half-term, the centre of our learning will be on addition and subtraction within 10 and then we will move on to look at the names and properties of common 2D and 3D shapes .

In Science, we will be observing changes across the 4 seasons in addition to observing and describing weather associated with the seasons.

In our Geography lessons this half term, we will use simple compass directions and locational/directional language to describe the location of features and routes on a map. We will then use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of our school and its grounds. We will also go on a local walk around Winsford to locate key buildings and places and will stop off at the local library for a visit.

In History, we will explore changes within our living memory. We will compare how stories and books have changed over time and identify our parent's and grandparent’s favourite stories. We will then explore and compare toys from the past e.g. Victorian toys. We also have an exciting trip planned for the Weaver Hall Museum where we will get to explore and play with some toys from the past!
