This is a very exciting year as the children learn through a wide range of amazing topics. As they are the eldest in the school, the children are given the opportunity to take on many responsibilities. They apply for jobs and following a successful interview, become Assembly Monitors, Fruit Monitors, School Guides, School Gardeners or Playground Leaders.
Just wait until the autumn term when the children will learn about all sorts of Curious Creatures. They will become hedgehog specialists and hopefully have a visit from a real life hedgehog as well as reading the amusing story about a young hedgehog called Max who shows his resilience and determination to solve the problem of how to cross the road safely.
In the spring term they will dive into history learning through drama, artefacts and books all about the amazing, ground breaking work of three incredible nurses, Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl will help them become wordsmiths, choosing their words with care and fun! looking at the work of Clarice Cliff they will create their own ceramic masterpiece to hold some very unusual marvellous medicines!
We complete the year with a flash of of fire, creating our own dragons with an amazing visit from artist Anthony James creator of Creaturama. They will learn all about dragons and knights and the fine arts of flying, dragon slaying, fire breathing and of course becoming friends through reading The Dragon Machine by Helen Ward. As experienced history detectives, they will research the facts behind why The Great Fire of London was such a disaster and compare it to Warwick's Great Fire. Finally they will amaze everyone with a fantastic performance of....well just wait and see!
