Year 1

Wish you were here

During this topic, the children will be reading the book “The Bee Who Spoke”. As well as underpinning our literacy work, this book will enable the children to understand differences in geographical locations, including landscape and weather.

On Launch Day, the children will experience what life is like in France; food tasting and learning some French as well as building the Eiffel Tower. We will also use google maps to find where we live.

Beginning by looking at our local area, we will plan a route and then create a series of instructions to direct others. We will then develop our map skills by exploring where Hull is within Yorkshire and naming and locating other main towns and cities. Finally, we will learn the names and locations of the four countries in the UK.

PE: Rugby – Please note children will need an outdoor PE kit.

RE: Worship and Festivals– we will be looking at what happens in a place of worship.

PSHE (Jigsaw): Relationships

We will invite parents and carers to attend our Summer Festival at the end of this term to celebrate our topic with us.

Year 2

Wish you Were Here – The Conservation of our World

Our topic will all centre around the book 10 Things I Can Do To Help My World. As well as taking our guided reading and literacy focus from the text we will also be researching recycling, how we can help our local area and how we can help by reducing, reusing and recycling in school. We will be visiting a range of villages, towns and cities to establish what life is like there and how local communities work together to protect their environment.  With a computer focus, we will then be looking at algorithms and using a variety of iPad apps and hardware we will be creating an algorithm for our journeys.
