Reading in the curriculum

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 Plants: Knowledge Organiser Science

In Geography, we are learning all about the rainforests in Brazil: Knowledge Organiser Geography

  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.


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 are looking at community and equality and why it is important to Sikhs.
