Knowledge Organiser for this term

Knowledge Organisers should be used to support your child throughout the topic being covered. They provide dates, key vocabulary, key facts and important information that will be covered. Children will use these both in school and at home to supplement their learning, allowing us to work collaboratively together.


Knowledge Organisers are designed to help with our current home learning packs, they provide additional support and direction for families whilst learning at home. They can be used as a point of reference for year group knowledge and expectations within the given topic area. 

We have had a busy week in Y1S. Children have enjoyed our new class 'Monsters' by Russel Hoban. They have enjoyed colouring our class monster, making monster masks and making monster with the K-Nex.


In Maths we have been learning about part whole models and the children have enjoyed doing this practically.

In Science we continued our topic on Materials and began looking at the properties of them through exploring them and describing it. We have also looked at seasonal changes and we collected lots of autumnal leaves. 
We have also got stuck into our Art learning looking at the artist Piet Mondrian and we all had a go at creating different pieces inspired by him using oil pastels and cut out coloured squares and rectangles.

Now Press Play



Y1S enjoyed their session using Now Press Play. We went on a magical adventure linked to our Science topic of materials. The children helped to save the world from the evil witch who turned everything into plastic! 

Aliens Love Underpants


Children have enjoyed our work around the book Aliens Love Underpants. In provision they have been making aliens and rockets in the construction area. They have enjoyed using our space station in the role play area and they have been getting creative and designing there own underpants!


In Literacy, we have been looking at how to write a list. They all had a go at writing a shopping list to make alien biscuits which in their reading lesson they had a go at reading and following the instructions on how to decorate the biscuit. Have a look-
