Knowledge Organisers

We have produced knowledge organisers to provide you with a more detailed overview of the learning in some areas of the wider curriculum. These knowledge organisers are shared with the children and provide parents with an opportunity to go through some of the key learning at home. In particular, we would ask that you support the children with their understanding of the key vocabulary for each curriculum area, as outlined in the knowledge organisers. 

In Science, we are looking at Rocks and Soils and Light

In History, we are looking at how life changed in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age

Our school values are: Responsibility, Resilience and Respect.

Our British Values Focus this Term 

In our assemblies this term, our British Values will link to our school values of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience. We will be looking primarily at the British Value of The Rule of Law and Mutual Respect and tolerance for others.

In RE will be focusing on the British Values of the mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs when looking at the sacred text in different religions. 


One of the seven outcomes we would like from our curriculum is for the children to develop their understanding of what it means to live in a diverse society such as Britain.

To support that this term, we will be looking at the journey that refugees undertake and how they settle in their new home.
