Welcome to Class One's page


Down on the Farm


I hope you all had a lovely Summer break.


In Class One we have a different topic each half term. This half term our topic is 'Down on the Farm'. In this topic we will be looking at stories such as 'Old Macdonald', 'The Gingerbread Man' and 'The Enormous Turnip' as a basis for our Literacy work. These books will also link to our other subjects such as Science and History.


In Art we will be looking at the artist Guiseppe Arcumboldo, recreating our own versions of his art work.


We will be starting our topic by looking at the story of 'The Little Red Hen'. We will be becoming millers to grind our wheat to make flour and then using this to make our own bread.


Some questions we hope to answer this term:


  • Do all animals eat the same food?
  • Where does our food come from?
  • What are the different properties of materials and what are they used for?
  • How can we design and make moving pictures to illustrate a story?
  • What does it mean to belong to a religion?
  • How did The Great Fire of London start?











In the Secret Garden


In this topic we will be using stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Peter Rabbit as a basis for our Literacy work, writing about the characters and writing our own stories.


In Science we will be looking at plants. The children will be planting their own sunflowers and observing the changes.


In Geography, we will be looking at where in the world you may find different plants and birds and creating maps for a 'Secret Garden'.


Questions we hope to answer


  • How do plants grow?
  • Do plants drink?
  • How do seeds turn into plants?
  • How do seeds spread?
  • Where do flowers grow?
  • What makes a good birds's nest?
  • Who is Georgia O'Keefe?
