The Olympics




In Science this term we will be identifying that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food: they get nutrition from what they eat. We will also identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement.



In DT this term we will be learning mechanisms. We will be making our own model chariots in junk modelling.




In PSHE , in this unit of work, children will focus on goals and aspirations. They will start by discussing achievements they have accomplished so far and the type of attitude that helps us to succeed. Children will identify ways of applying a growth mindset to new challenges and learn about the importance of resilience. Opportunities will also be provided for children to share aspirations for their future employment and personal goals and through this learning, they will consider different jobs and careers. In doing this, we will explore some of the difficulties faced by stereotyping. Children will also have the opportunity to think about the specific skills they might wish to develop in order to achieve their short, mid and long-term goals.


In R.E this Hinduism unit will give children an overview of Hinduism, focusing on its origins, core beliefs, festivals, special places. Children will explore the different holy books, identify key Hindu symbols and understand their meanings.




In Topic this term our key question is: Why are the Olympics an important part of Greek history?

We will look at the origins of the Olympic Games and explore the Ancient Greek culture of the day. Imagine what it would have been like for the first athletes as they prepared for competing and try the foods they ate. We will have an Olympic ceremony-House morning and opening ceremony.





In Math's, Year 2 will be learning all about Statistics followed by position and direction.

Year 3 will be learning about money, followed by shape and then statistics.

Year 4 will be learning about money, shape, statistics and then position and direction.



In English we will be reading Pride, The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag.

This is a two-week Writing Root for Pride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag by Rob Sanders in which children begin by exploring the symbolism and the history of the Rainbow/Pride Flag before discovering the story and significance of Harvey Milk as well as other figures central to the LGBTQ+ Rights Movement of San Francisco in the late 1970s and beyond.  During this sequence of learning they will have the opportunity to write leaflets about the Pride Flag, speeches in role as Harvey Milk and to eventually create a biography of the activist’s life.


We will also be reading FArTHER. 

This three-week Writing Root begins by introducing the concept of dreams and how important they are in our lives. It continues by exploring the text through a range of activities that include explicit grammar teaching, opportunities for shorter written outcomes and book talk. Children create a story-map of the key events from the book to write a sequel and create a set of instruction to describe how their own flying machine works. Children finish by writing a longer story about an adventure in a sequel to the text.
