Autumn Term


Within history during this term, children will build upon their prior knowledge and uncover more of the mysteries of the ancient Egyptian civilization. This exploration into history will take the children to the heart of the Golden Age of Egyptian archaeology. 

Our journey into the past does not end there. The children will be finding out about achievements and legacies. They will develop an appreciation and understanding of the past and recognise that historical events can have meaning and relevance for their lives today. Democracy, Stone Age paintings, social classes and the origin of the Olympics, are some of the amazing things we have planned. Through becoming historians, the children will achieve a greater sense of chronology and time periods.


We will be focusing on the skills needed to draw a range of images taking inspiration from various artists and curriculum subjects. The children will be learning about shading, perspective and proportion. They will also be developing their knowledge of colour mixing and choosing the correct medium. In addition to this, the children will be creating sculptures.


In geography, we want children to be curious about the world and develop a fascination that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. In order to achieve this, the children will be developing a set of geographical skills, whilst investigating people and places. Get ready to delve across the oceans of the world and discover a variety of biomes! Once there, children will build upon their geographical skills through using, reading and understanding a variety of maps. 


Exploring materials will be the focus in science. The children will be developing their knowledge and understanding of chemistry through this topic. The children will be planning enquiries and recording data, whilst building a knowledge rich understanding of materials and their properties.


Christianity will be the focus of RE lessons. The children will be exploring religious beliefs and they will gain the skills needed to engage with religion. We will be encouraging pupils to become curious and to ask questions about religion and beliefs.


As part of our commitment to developing pupils’ personal, social, health and economic knowledge and skills, the children will be learning about their rights and responsibilities as a citizen both in school and as part of the wider world.


To promote healthy lifestyles, the children will be participating in a range of physical education. They will be developing their fundamental skills such through the invasion game hockey before undertaking a unit of Dance where children will learn, partake and adapt a routine! 


The children will be developing their singing skills through the participation in a singing group led by a music specialist. This will then be transferred into the classroom.


In maths, the children will be building upon their knowledge of the times tables and they will continuing with daily rehearsal of the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
