Parent Curriculum Information

Each half-term we share an overview of our curriculum with our parents/carers.  A copy of these can be found at the bottom of this page.  A paper copy is sent home each half-term.  We hope our parents/carers find this useful information to know what their child is learning and to support them in having conversations with their children.  


Each half-term, we create and send home a homework menu.  This has a range of learning activities linked to our current topic and reading. We send a paper copy home to parents each half-term. 

Knowledge Organisers

These provide the key knowledge we will be learning in our foundation topics this half-term.  It would be useful to look at these with you child and talk about them.  You could have mini quizzes to see what they can remember, draw parts of them, or they can create their own version.  This will help the children to ensure they remember the knowledge fully. 

If you would like another copy of any of these documents, please don't hesitate to contact us.  




Look at our amazing learning all about rivers.  Our knowledge of river features is fantastic!  After creating a river in school, we made these magnificent models at home. 

On Monday 12th September, we enjoyed a day of learning all about the Ancient Egyptians.  We all dressed up in amazing costumes!  We made flat breads, learnt about the river Nile, made necklaces and hieroglyphics.  What a day!

Stone Age - Amazing clay work, artwork and look at the magnificent mini Stonehenge!  The children made fossils at home as part of their home learning.
