Our KS1 Curriculum 2023-2024

Autumn 1 – Let’s Go Wild

This half term, we will be exploring the wonder of nature for our whole-school project ‘Let’s Go Wild!’. We will be focusing our learning on the work of the inspirational Sir David Attenborough and looking at how we can re-wild our school environment and surrounding community. We have lots of exciting opportunities planned, including an Art session with the natural artist, James Brunt, as well as an outdoor learning experience with our local wildlife trust.

Autumn 2 – Fire! Fire!

This half term, we will be putting our historian hats on and taking a trip back in time to 1666. We will be learning about the events of The Great Fire of London and delving into the famous diary of Samuel Pepys. To help us remember how the fire started, we will be baking our own loaves of bread just like Thomas Farriner did on Pudding Lane (without the fire this time!)

Spring 1 – Mayhem in Mexico

For our multi-cultural term, we will be studying the vibrant and fascinating country of Mexico! We will be kick-starting our half term with a ‘Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration day where we will be doing lots of Mexican inspired activities like food tasting, dancing and Spanish speaking.

Spring 2 – Chocolicious!

This half term we will be delving into the wonderful world of… chocolate! We will be reading Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ in our English lessons and will be designing our own chocolate bars, inspired by Willy Wonka, in our Design and Technology lessons.

Summer 1 – Tell Us A Story!

This half term, our whole school will be diving into a story festival where we will be celebrating the incredible Julia Donaldson. We will be reading some of her fabulous stories such as The Smeds and The Smoos, The Baddies and The Ugly Five.

Summer 2 – Going For Gold

For our final half term, we will be learning what it’s like to be an Olympian! We will kick start our new topic with a trip to The English Institute of Sport where we will get the chance to compete in lots of different sports, just like Jessica Ennis-Hill and Mo Farah. We will be learning about some very inspirational people too, such as Wilma Rudolph, Ellie Simmonds and Gavin Walker… who we will get the chance to meet in person!
