Spring 1 Victorians & UK Geography

In Autumn Term 2 we will be back to teaching the full curriculum, now we have completed the recovery curriculum in Autumn Term 1.  The coverage in English and Maths will now progress on to the Year 3 curriculum objectives but those children who need further intervention with Year 2 objectives will still engage with further intervention. In English we will be focusing on non-fiction genres by exploring diary entries and non-chronological reports. In Maths we will be delving further into more challenging concepts of number and place value and addition and subtraction.


In History we will be introducing our unit of learning around the Victorians. We will be looking at Queen Victoria and what life was like during this historical period. In Art we will study the work of Vincent Van Gogh. We will explore his different painting styles and techniques and try to create our very own landscapes. 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!
