Our Learning

Please use the links below to learn more about the topics we will be learning about this year.

Autumn - Toys & Inventors

We love playing with toys and now we love learning about them, too! We begin this exciting topic by sharing our own favourite toys and then go on to compare them with the toys children played with in the past. We get the chance to handle and look closely at many different toys, observing how they work and the materials they are made from. This is supported by a fantastic visit to Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood, where we are able to ride a rocking horse and stand next to a giant robot.

Spring - Homes, Architects & Inventors

We go through the keyhole in our second history topic to discover what homes were like in the past. We start by looking at the features of our own homes and the homes in our local area by going on a local area walk. Once we are equipped with the vocabulary we need, we begin to learn about and compare the homes, both inside and outside, that people would have lived in a long time ago. We even get the chance to step inside some of these homes from the past, on a trip to the Museum of Kent life.

Summer - Food Around The World

Have you ever wondered where all our food comes from? Well we have and this is exactly what we find out in our Year one geography topic. A visit to Sainsbury’s shows us just how much food is sent to the UK, while a trip to Horton Kirby helps us to see how some of this food is grown in our own soil. This topic gives us the chance to explore how weather across the world affects what food is grown where and what conditions fruit and veg needs to grow. We even get the chance to grow some of our own!


In place of in-school learning meetings for this year, please watch our video presentations from the class teachers.

PE

In line with current government guidlelines children should not bring in non-essential items from home we therefore ask that children to wear their PE kit to school on their PE days instead of bringing their PE kit to school in their bag.

Please ensure that your child you child comes to school wearing the correct PE kit on the days they are scheduled to have a PE Lesson.  To find out more about the PE kit please click here.
