Curriculum Info.



Autumn Term 2 will see the continuation of our full enriched curriculum. 

This term in English we will be exploring Charles Dickens as a Victorian writer. Together we will be unpicking his style of writing, looking at the details in his character and setting descriptions before beginning to unpick biographies. In Maths we will be introducing a range of formal written methods for addition and subtraction and using this knowledge to solve a range of number and word problems. Towards the latter stages of the term, we will begin to introduce both informal and formal written methods to solve multiplication. 


As usual our afternoons will be packed full of fun! In History we will be concluding our learning on the Victorians by evaluating what life was like for children. We will explore children's lives in relation to the workhouses, mines and schooling. We will then begin to explore the Victorians through a geographical focus, exploring the infrastructure of rivers, canals and trains. 


In PSHE we will be thinking about what it means to be responsible by exploring rules, rights and responsibilities. We will look at how these form part of the law and consequences we could face by breaking the rules. In RE will be exploring Hinduism and considering what life is like for Hindus in Britain today. We will study their beliefs, explore how they worship and draw comparisons to other religions. In Science we will be exploring humans, including animals and in PE we will engage with rhythmic gymnastics and hockey.


This term we also hope to have lots of extra fun activities planned. We will be engaging with whole-school themes linked to Remembrance Day, Diwali and Christmas. We also hope to provide a WOW day as part of our Victorian unit by pretending to be in a Victorian classroom one day!
