This half-term (Summer 2023 Term 1) your child will learn about:
Easter and Pentecost:
In the unit of Easter, the children learn about the Easter season, with a focus on the Easter vigil. We also focus on the ascension of Jesus in the Easter story.
In the unit of Pentecost, we look at the coming of the Holy spirit, through the lens of the church. We also explore the Holy Trinity and devotion to prayer.
During the topic of fantasy, children learn how to engage their readers by writing mythical stories. We start by focussing on the famous tale of ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.’

Whilst looking at shape, children explore regular and irregular polygons, as well as angles 2D and 3D shapes.
Position and direction allow the children to learn about symmetry, translation and co-ordinates.
Pupils will revisit the life cycles of plants and learn about pollination.
We also look at the life cycles of amphibians, insects and mammals, whilst comparing them.
