SRE Curriculum

This year we will continue to teach the children using materials from our new Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) scheme. This new edition of ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’ reflects the recent developments in SRE and the Science National Curriculum.

All the lessons have a clear structure and are age appropriate. The lesson plans have clear aims and learning outcomes with suggested additional activities and accompanying resources:

St George's Day - design your own sheild

NHS posters and video

World book week. As part of world book day we are focusing on the story The Day the Crayons Quit.

We performed poems as part of our English learning. We had to think of some actions to go with our poems for our performances.

We made boats as part of our end of term Materials topic. The boats had to float for 10 seconds and hold a Lego man - some didn't quite manage to float for the whole time.

Welcome to India ... 

This week has been Cultural and diversity week, we have taken part in a range of activities and created some amazing art work which is displayed in the Year 1 area and some in the dining hall. We have tasted some Indian food, danced to Indian music and painted with spices.

We have been looking at the story the Three Little Pigs by Ian Beck, we have created our own puppets and pig houses. We acted out the story on the stage area.
