Knowledge Organisers

Please see 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 history we will be learning about The Great Fire of London. For more information about the learning please open the following link: Great Fire of London Knowledge Organiser

In science we will be learning about materials. For more information about the learning, please open the following link: Uses of Everyday Materials Knowledge Organiser

 

Our school values are Respect, Responsibility and Resilience,

 

Our British Values Focus this Term 

In our assemblies this term, our British Values will link to our school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. We will be looking primarily at the British Value of The Rule of Law, Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs

In class, we will focus on the British Value of Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs when we learn about the importance of parables for Christians and the importance of light in different religions. We will also focus on Mutual Respect and Tolerance of Those with Different Faiths and Beliefs through our literacy text of ‘My name is not refugee’. 

Diversity

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 address and explore diversity, by looking at the text ‘My name is not refugee’.
