Unlocking potential today for a brighter tomorrow

Summer Term

Summer Term 1 

During Summer term 1, the children look at the following topics: 

  • Animal Life Cycles (Chicken Licken)
  • Minibeasts (The Very Hungry Caterpillar)
  • Zookeepers and the zoo (The Tiger Who Came To Tea)
  • Farmers and the farm (Rosie's Walk)

During these topics, children will learn lots of new things about the world, including; mothers and their babies, life cycles of various animals and information facts about a wide range of animals.

We will learn about the difference between a zoo and a farm, and where our different foods originate and grow and how it appears in our shops. All our topics lead to our farm trip, just after half term.


Summer Term 2  

During Summer term 2, the children look at the following topics: 

  • Vets and pets (Mog and the Vet)
  • Police Officers/Road Safety (Police officers on patrol)
  • Seaside in the UK/Abroad (Billy's Bucket)

On our return to school in our last term, we take a trip to Ash End Farm in Tamworth! Then, during the lovely summer weather, children will spend more time exploring outdoors and partaking fun summer crafts such as making their own ice creams, building sand castles and enjoy a water-gun fight! Children will also learn about a variety of careers and what the emergency services do to help us.
