Curriculum overview KS1 and KS2 Y1 English Curriculum OverviewY1 Maths Curriculum Overview

Autumn 1 ~ Brainwave - The Brain

In Autumn 1 the children are learning about thier brains, what they are for, and how they connect our body and all our ideas together.

The children will also be adapting to a change of key stage. Children are transitioning from EYFS to KS1.

They are also beginning to learn about traditional tales focusing on the tale of Rumplestiltskin and also learning about online safety.

Autumn 2 - Treasure Islands

The world is a connected place, for thousands of years we have been building networks of trade across the land and sea. In this unit, we will explore how islands became increasingly connected and how they sold their resources to others. We will also look at the challenges of transporting goods across the seas and oceans and how this was threatened by nature and by people... pirates! 

We will be geographers and cartographers as well as artists and designers.

Spring 1 - Green Fingers

We will be learning about plants and how important they are to our world. Plants are living things – they grow when we give them enough sunlight, food and water. Plants give us food to eat, clean air to breathe and materials to build our houses and furniture. We can use plants to make clothes and medicines, and to decorate our gardens. To fully engage with this unit, we will need to be scientists, geographers and international learners. How important are plants to our world?

Spring 2 - Time Travellers

We will be learning about how people find out about the past, the clues we can uncover and how evidence tells us what happened in the past. We will be historians finding out about how past is recorded and represent. We will explore our own past and how we can find out more. Have much can you remember from your past? What can you find out?

Summer 1 - A Day in the Life

We will be learning about many exciting jobs from different places and time periods in order to create our own imaginary community. We will need to be historians, geographers, musicians, designers and citizens of the world! What job would you like to do when you grow up?

Summer 2 - The Earth: Our Home

All living things – plants, animals and people – have a home or somewhere to live that we call a ‘habitat’. A habitat can be huge like the ocean or small like a leaf. To survive, living things need to live in places that meet their needs. What do living things need to survive? How do different habitats provide for their needs? We will need to be scientists and geographers in order to answer these questions.
