English – fiction  

Using colourful semantics to form sentences and practice correct grammar e.g the use of capital letters, spacing, full stops and how to make it make sense. We are also going to have a handwriting focus to secure the basics before we move on to story writing next term.  

English – non-fiction  

Letter writing – writing a letter home to share what we have achieved in our first term in Oak class.  


Place value, representing numbers in different ways and addition  

IT – interactive technology  

Connecting computers – how to devices connect? We are going to learn how to input information, what the process is and how it forms an output  

Science – Biology  

Animals and their habitats, food chains and environmental factors that are affecting the survival of animals  

Humanities – History 

Anglo Saxons and the Vikings!  



We will be using Van Gogh’s Starry Night as a starting point. Students will explore and experiment with a range of materials and techniques including oil pastels, clay and mono-printing. Embedded into each lesson students will also be invited to experiment with various mark-making techniques.   

Food and Nutrition   

Locally sourced food! A taste test of common British food and then a week by week lesson on how to cook each food.  


‘Me and my relationships’ – understanding how others are feeling and how my behaviour can affect others  


The children will be looking at ‘Grow throughout life’. They will be learning and reflecting on themselves and their strengths.  We will also be spending time looking at different careers like teaching, police and vet and what they need to have to do their jobs.
