Year 1

Dive into the world of make believe – Rapunzel

During this topic, the children will be reading the book “Rapunzel”. As well as underpinning our literacy work, this book will link to our topic work in an afternoon. We will be exploring how life was different in the past and learning how to bake bread to make sandwiches for a picnic with Rapunzel herself.

Beginning by exploring different styles and flavours of bread, we will plan and bake our very own. We will develop our cutting skills by adding different ingredients to our bread as well as cutting up slices of our bread to make sandwiches. We will investigate what life was like in the past, looking at various sources and using timelines to compare past and present day items.

PE: Games – Children will need outdoor kit including trainers.

RE: Looking at me, looking at you – Exploring what makes us special.

PSHE (Jigsaw): Being me in my world.

Year 2

Dive into Make Believe – The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl

Our topic will all centre around the book The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl. As well as taking our guided reading and literacy focus from the text we will also be researching the life of Roald Dahl and his impact on children’s literature in our history focus. 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 Design and technology focus, we will then be creating our own recipes, making and then evaluating the products.
