Summer Term 2: On the Beach

This project teaches children about the plants and animals that live at the seaside. It also explores holidays in the past and the importance of keeping safe in the Sun.

Summer Term 1: Animal Safari

This project teaches children about the animals that live around the world, how to look after animals and the importance of caring for our local and global environments.

Spring Term 2: Ready Steady Grow

This project teaches children about food and farming and explores themes, including where food comes from, what plants and animals need to grow and survive and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.

Spring Term 1: Long Ago


This project teaches children about how they have grown and changed since they were babies and how life in the past was different from today.

We enjoyed dressing up in costumes from the past!

We used different materials and styles to create self portraits just like artists from the past.

Autumn Term 2: Marvellous Machines

This interest-led project teaches children about the technology that is part of their daily lives and how machines help us. The project gives children the opportunity to build and create marvellous machines.
