Autumn Term

Our theme for the Autumn term is...

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat - What are our dreams for the future?

We will be thinking about where we have come from in our lives and where we are going this year. We will think about what we would like to achieve and what we would like to do throughout the year.

This term we will also be building on our writing abilities and working towards looking at traditional tales in Exciting Writing. In science, we will be looking at the basic parts of the human body and the 5 senses; touch, taste, smell, sound and sight. Baston Surgery will soon be open for business ready for children to help make each other better! Our maths this term will be based upon counting, addition and subtraction, and shapes.

Spring Term

Our theme for the Spring term is...

The Lion King - What is our place in the world?

Our main focuses this term lie in geography and history as we explore the 7 continents, the 5 oceans and the Commonwealth.

This term, our writing will be build upon our descriptive writing skills as we challenge ourselves with writing a short animal adventure story in Exciting Writing. In maths, we are going to look at position and direction, length and height and also continue to develop our addition and subtraction.

Our art this term will be based around African art. We will explore our use of colour and line in many different ways.
